The Penn Publications Cooperative (PubCo) is an umbrella group.
At its most basic level, PubCo serves as a gatekeeper to Student Activities Council (SAC) funding. In order for publications to receive funding, they must first achieve PubCo recognition and remain in good standing as PubCo members.
However, PubCo strives to play a more active role in the Penn community. PubCo purchases and maintains racks throughout campus to help publications distribute issues. In the past, PubCo has organized awards to showcase some of the best articles, layouts, and photos that Penn’s publications have produced. We also hope to serve as a forum for Penn’s publications—to discuss common problems that arise during the process of producing a magazine and to find potential solutions.
