Each year, The Observer must appoint an editorial board for the following school year. These positions are open to any undergraduate student at Case Western Reserve University. The Executive Editor is elected by majority vote of the active editorial board; the remaining staff positions are appointed by the elected Executive Editor. Incoming first-year students are eligible to apply.
