      The University Program Board (UPB) is a student-run organization that brings a variety of entertainment and educational programs to campus. We bring the fun energy to SRU. It’s your source for campus activities!

        At UPB, our mission is to provide exceptional event planning services that cater to the diverse needs and interests of our campus community. We believe that events play a pivotal role in fostering a sense of belonging, unity, and entertainment among students. Through our collaborative and innovative approach, we strive to create memorable and engaging experiences that leave a lasting impact on our campus. If you’re ready to head backstage, then consider joining UPB! Being a member of UPB not only gives you a voice on what activities are brought to campus; it also teaches you skills that you can apply regardless of where your career goals lie!

UPB Committee Members with Alex Morgan.

        Students lead the work of two committees that create and promote a diverse array of campus programs.  The E-Board consists of six director positions that make up UPB. The positions include President, Director of Special Events, Director of Concerts, Director of University Events, Director of Speakers, and Director of media. The UPB committee is made up of students who help create and work at events, and the Media committee promotes those events through various channels of social media. Committee members are just as important as the directors and contribute so much to this program. There is so much hands on experience and fun that come with being part of UPB. All students are encouraged to get involved by joining a UPB committee.
