The Illini Union Board, known as IUB, is comprised of student ambassadors that support anything and everything at the Illini Union. They plan and program a variety of events based on student demand. Since 1942, IUB has served as the voice of the students and advise the administration staff on building policies and procedures. If it's happening at the Union, IUB is helping it happen. And while they are planning it all, knowledge of governance and outreach are growing tenfold.


Serving on the Illini Union Board is an experience in group process, ethics, leadership, volunteerism and social responsibility. Board members gain real world skills and make lasting connections with peers, faculty, staff and alumni. Because IUB is involved in the daily operations of a vibrant Union, the experience is both rich and diverse - with an agenda that requires diligence and an aptitude for cooperative business practices which, in turn, lead to success.
