About the Union Board
Current committees serving Union Board
The Indiana Memorial Union Board is composed of 13 active programming committees, all of which work towards the continual fulfillment of our mission statement. The majority of the committees is responsible for the planning and execution of quality programs, however the Advertising Committee and Public Relations Committee function primarily as support for the entire Board.
We encourage you to get involved in a committee and to help decide what happens on your campus. All committee meetings are open, and all ideas are welcome. See you at the U!
