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 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 Groups

Getting involved with a UPB Core Group, means you will help to plan an upcoming UPB event. Each event uses a core group to brainstorm the different facests of the event including activities, production, promotion, and more! 

Getting involved with a Core Group is a commitment to planning a UPB event. This commitment includes planning different elements of the event and committing to attend weekly core group meetings. This is a great way to take your leadership to the next level.

To view the available Core Groups to get involved with, come to our next UPB Member Meeting, or contact
