HSIV chairs are responsible for creating a social network between the universities and the communities in Wisconsin by holding a state-wide conference that will be held in different locations each year in order to provide ALL students access and opportunity.  Furthermore HSIV chairs will be holding a community project.  The Editorial Committee is not limited to the one magazine project; however, they are also welcome to all HSIV events.  The Editorial committee is only responsible in creating a magazine in order to integrate all the student voices in one magazine that will be distributed free of charge to the community.  HSIV Chairs are only different from the Editorial Committee in the projects that they choose to pursue; however, they both contribute to the purpose of HSIV: Connecting across campuses and communities.
