The Erb Memorial Union Board is responsible for making general policy decisions and long-range plans for the operation of the EMU. The board allocates the EMU's multi-million dollar budget, assigns space for student groups and advises staff in the management of the EMU.

The sixteen-member board consists of twelve students (seven elected in a campus-wide election and five direct appointments from either EMU programs or the ASUO), three faculty members appointed by the UO President and one EMU staff member elected by their peers.

Being a member of the EMU Board provides students with the opportunity to work intimately with UO faculty and staff on a diverse set of issues, such as policy making, budgeting, and program development.


Fridays from 2:00–4:00 p.m.
