The Scribendi staff is composed of thirteen undergraduate honors students enrolled in the UNM Honors College at the University of New Mexico. These students are supervised by a faculty advisor, who is a tenured professor in the program. The staff is in charge of every decision and duty in the publication process, including recruiting submissions, selecting works for publication, proofreading, copyediting, designing pages, typesetting, laying out text, publicizing the magazine, and raising funds.

Staff members represent all majors, including physics and math as well as English and fine arts. Students must apply and interview to join the Scribendi staff, which is offered as a two-semester, 300-level class through the University of New Mexico Honors College. Upperclassmen receive preference, and freshmen are not accepted to the staff. The magazine’s editor in chief and managing editor are also undergraduate students who have applied and interviewed for their positions. Editors in chief and managing editors generally have worked on the Scribendi staff in previous years.

Students are expected to work on Scribendi projects for about six hours per week outside of class time to keep the magazine running smoothly. Staff members, including the editor in chief and managing editor, are not paid for being a part of Scribendi, but they receive two semesters worth (six hours) of college credit for their work.
