Campus Programming Board
The Campus Programming Board is launching this spring (2020) to prepare and plan a variety of events and programs for the MC student body beginning in the fall of 2020. What has been known as the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will transition into a larger and broader group known as the Campus Programming Board. This board will plan a variety of events, fun activities, large scale campus weekends and events, educational programs and more.
Who will lead the Campus Programming Board?
The Campus Programming Board will be led by two student directors that work in the Office of Student Engagement throughout the fall and spring semester. The directors will lead eleven (11) committee chairs who, along with their committees, plan and execute a variety of programming for the campus. Committee membership will be on a semester-by-semester basis, meaning you don't have to commit to the entire year or multiple years. You can decide how much you want to be involved!
