The UAB is made of 6 distinct committees, each led by a committee chair. These chairs are responsible for organizing events throughout the semester, as well as leading their committees of student volunteers who help generate event ideas and make events successful. Below is a brief description of each committee. If you are interested in joining one of these committees, please contact the email address found on the committee page.
Black Students Board
|The Black Students Board is one of NC State University’s first African American organizations after the African American Student Advisory Council (AASAC). The Board exists to foster a sense of unity among students of the African Diaspora. It is our belief that “the pursuit of culture is not readily attained. It must be cultivated with determination, strength, creativity, and unity.”
Diversity Activities Board
|The Diversity Activities Board is a committee that welcomes representatives from diverse organizations/clubs on campus to participate in programming for the Union Activities Board. Our mission is to promote, produce, facilitate, and educate by conducting events that help students to raise their awareness of and appreciation for other backgrounds, cultures and perspectives.
|The Films Committee selects and promotes the films shown at the NCSU Campus Cinema. We aim to satisfy every type of moviegoer, offering box office blockbusters, as well as occasional independent films. At random, the committee runs sneak peek previews, allowing students to screen films before they are released to the public in theaters across the country. Our mission is to provide students with a place to go for entertainment, and to help introduce the students to different cultures from Bollywood Films to Latin American Film and more.
Issues and Ideas
|The UAB Issues & Ideas Committee’s mission is to provide students with information about current issues and a forum in which to discuss them. We work to both address topics in which students have an interest, and to inform them of important issues that affect them of which they may not be aware. This can include local, national, or international political dilemmas as well as controversial ideas in academic disciplines. It is our hope that through such programming, students will expand their knowledge base outside the college classroom.
Concerts and Entertainment
|The Concerts and Entertainment committee helps plan several large university concerts (such as Pack Howl and All Night Bash) along with providing students with fun and engaging events to enhance their college experience.
Leisure and Recreation
|The Leisure and Recreation Committee offers an assortment of fun and engaging activities for the student body. Through new ventures and old traditions, we help students get the full experience of college life by providing stress-busting activities and events.
|The mission of the Marketing Committee is to promote and publicize the Union Activities Board and its events through the use of various marketing techniques. It aims to do so via word-of-mouth, print and multimedia, including, but not limited to, promotional flyers, posters and handbills, buttons, t-shirts, water bottles, stickers, a website and online social networks.
