Board of Directors

The Student Union Board of Directors is the governing body for the Student Union of CSUSB. The board's decisions help ensure that the Student Union serves the diverse needs of the campus community by encouraging quality social, cultural and intellectual activities and support services.

The Student Union Board of Directors oversees the programs and operations of the Santos Manuel Student Union. The Student Union is a non-profit corporation and an auxiliary of the university. Student Board Representatives enhance their resumes by running a million-dollar non-profit corporation before college graduation. The Student Union Board of Directors makes policy to ensure the fiscal viability and effective operation of the Student Union building and its programs and services.

The Student Union Board of Directors is comprised of seven students-at-large, the Associated Students Inc., President and Executive Vice President, one alumni representative, the University President or designee, two faculty representatives, one administrative representative, and the Student Union Executive Director.

All CSUSB students who demonstrate campus involvement and enthusiasm are encouraged to apply for the Student Representative positions.
