What We Do


The Illini Union Board is the campus event-planning board, providing over 160 entertaining events and activities for students. Comprised of 11 different planning committees, the IU Board plans hundreds of annual events, ranging from comedy shows, movie nights, art exhibits, special appearances, to weekly trivia, craft nights, to special events like the monthly Illinites, and the annual outdoor concert on the Quad – Spring Jam. The Board provides a fun opportunity to gain real-world experience for students interested in improving their organizational skills and professional training.
