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.
