The University Unions

The University Unions act as the community center for the University, offering activities, programs, services, and facilities that complement the academic mission and focus on student development. The unions offer a wide variety of food services and items in stores, restaurants, and mobile food carts located throughout the campus.

The University Unions serve the University as community centers, providing facilities, services, and programs for students, faculty members, staff members, alumni, and friends of the University.

Programs are offered for intellectual, cultural, social, and recreational development. The unions coordinate beneficial co-curricular activities, promote genuine democracy, help cultivate responsible citizenship, and facilitate an intelligent interest in and deeper affection for the University. Through the many opportunities provided by the University Unions, students can strengthen their leadership experience, self-expression, and management skills.

The Board of Directors recommends policy for the University Unions. The voting membership of the board includes six students and three faculty members. The executive director of the University Unions and the vice president for student affairs, or the vice president’s delegate, serve as ex officio members without vote.
