join the 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.


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 U-Card, you could be on your way to more FREE stuff. We have open meetings every 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.


To keep up with UPB, sign up with the form below for our weekly email. You’ll get updates about meetings, volunteer opportunities, events and more. There’s no commitment and you can unsubscribe at any time.


If you want to continue your leadership development, plan great events, and help others to become better leaders, then apply for UPB Executive Committee by clicking the button below.  Applications are due March 31.


Any student who would be enrolled full-time at the University of Oklahoma for the 2014-2105 academic year (12 hours per semester for undergraduate students and 6 hours per semester for graduate students). Previous experience in the Union Programming Board is NOT required for application to the executive committee.


The Union Programming Board officers are slated by the Union Programming Coordinator (a full-time staff position) and a panel typically comprised of current UPB officers and graduate assistants after individual interviews. Any student who completes the application and meets the qualifications will receive an interview. Interviews will be held April 2-4.
