Union Board committees

Programming committees are responsible for planning and executing quality programs each semester. We encourage students to get involved in a committee so that they can help decide what happens on the IU campus.

All committees meet Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Committee meetings are open to students, and all ideas are welcome.
