About SUPB

The Student Unions Programming Board (SUPB) is designed to bring enthusiasm, energy and learning into the Missouri Student Unions. The Missouri Student Unions are composed of the Memorial Student Union and the MU Student Center. SUPB provides a learning environment for students who want to work within a smaller organization on campus. Students get experiences in leadership, event organization, contracts, negotiation, running meetings and collaboration. SUPB is a wonderful way to meet new friends, develop leadership skills, and make a positive impact on the MU campus and community.

SUPB uses an application process to match motivated students with committees that would best reflect their event-planning interests, professional goals, and the talents they bring with them. Applications are accepted throughout the year, feel free to stop by a meeting or e-mail us to learn about committees and involvement opportunities. We hope you come see for yourself what SUPB is all about.
