Join the UPB Team

By joining the Union Programming Board, you're joining a different kind of programming group. We not only bring concerts, movies and social activities but also work with other campus organizations to bring national speakers, leadership seminars and other developmental opportunities. If you want to help out with something as simple as serving popcorn before our free movies or perhaps create and plan a new event for the OU campus, we'll help you find your place.

How Do You Become a Member?

Becoming a member is as simple as attending a meeting or volunteering at an event. You show up, and you’re in! Show up a few times and you’ll get a T-shirt, and if you have a UPB-Card, you could be on your way to more FREE stuff. We have open meetings every other Wednesday night at 9 p.m. in the Union. Come by whenever you like to learn more and get involved, whether it’s the very first meeting of the year or the last. You determine your level of involvement.

Core Group Sign-Up

If you want to help to plan an upcoming UPB event, then sign-up for a core group. Each event uses a core group to brainstorm the different facets of the event, including production, promotion, and more! There is NO application, you just sign-up for which core group(s) you want to be on.

A core group is a commitment to planning a UPB event. You will have the opportunity to manage different elements of the event. Being a core group member is also a commitment to attending the core group meetings and putting in the time to plan the event. Core groups help to take your leaderhsip to the next level.


Volunteer Sign-Up

Want to be involved, but don't have the time to commit to a core group? No problem at all, you can sign up to help out before and during the event. Volunteers are one of the most important elements to making an event a success. 

Every event needs help leading up to the event and especially the day of the event. There are many different areas to contribute to UPB as a volunteer. Help to promote events, manage different elements of the event and more! Volunteers are a great way to be involved in UPB!
