Established in 2007, the Provost’s Undergraduate Student Advisory Board is overseen by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It is composed of undergraduate students named by each of the undergraduate serving colleges as well as five at-large members selected through this open application process. All members are appointed to serve one-year terms.
In Fall 2014, the Board will meet for discussion from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 15 and Thursday, November 13, 2014. A buffet lunch will be provided. Dates for the Spring 2015 meetings will be determined at a later date.

*Provide feedback on programs, administrative and academic policies, and initiatives established or overseen by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Innovation.
*Generate ideas and suggestions for programs and activities to enhance the academic experience of undergraduate students at the university.
*Undergraduate student standing for the 2014-2015 school year.
*Interest in academic affairs initiatives and activities on campus.
