Structure and Operations

SPB is made up of seven committees. These committees include both programming and support committees (to be discussed shortly). In addition, there is the Chairperson of the Student Program Board who oversees the seven committees and an Associate Chair who is the right-hand man (or woman) to the Chairperson. The Chairperson is appointed by the President and Vice President of Student Congress. The Chair will then interview and appoint the seven committee chairs and Associate Chair that make up the Executive Board.


There are two types of committees in SPB, programming committees and support committees. Programming committees have the responsibility of finding future programming. In addition, they have to plan the logistics of current programs and make sure that they run smoothly. Mainstage, Lecture, Annual Events, Recreation and Leisure, and Visual and Performing Arts are programming committees.

Support committees have task functions relating to programming of the other committees. Publicity is responsible for successfully publicizing the events of the Student Program Board so that all students will be aware of SPB's events on campus. Tech is also a support committee by providing lights, sound and stage set-up for all events that require such. All of the SPB committees are essential in ensuring the highest level of entertainment for Oakland University students...that means YOU!
