The broadcast license of WHUS is held by the Board of Trustees of the University of Connecticut and a majority of funding comes from fees paid by undergraduate students. WHUS also raises money by private donations, including an annual Radiothon fund drive and by renting space on WHUS’s tower. WHUS’s mission to the public is to provide a service in the form of noncommercial information and entertainment programming. WHUS is governed by an Operations Board elected every year by the staff.
