Want to make a difference on campus? Join UGBC!
While the UGBC general membership application is now closed, it's not too late to get involved with UGBC for the 2016-2017 school year! Here are a few ways to get involved:
New to BC? UGBC is a great way to get involved on campus, meet lots of new people, and effect meaningful change at BC. There are two main ways to get involved as a first-year student:
1) First-year Senate Seats: Run in a class-wide election to be elected to one of the five available first-year Senate seats in the Student Assembly, UGBC's Legislative Branch. In the Student Assembly, you will have the opportunity to work on creating and implementing major policy initiatives while representing your class. The elections themselves will take place in September with dates still to be determined. Prior to the elections there will be a mandatory info session for those intending to run. Email email@example.com or check out the Elections Committee for more information!
2) UGBC Leadership Academy (ULA): ULA is a program for first-year students that serves to assist with the transition into the BC community and as an introduction to UGBC. ULA aims to assist with the formation of UGBC's future leaders through discussions, direct mentorship, and lasting friendships. Applications are now open, so be sure to check them out, and email the directors Lynn Petrella (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Zach duBoulay (email@example.com ) for more information!
3) General Member in the AHANA Leadership Council (ALC) or GLBTQ Leadership Council (GLC): ALC & GLC weekly meetings are open to the public and any student is welcome to join as a general coordinator to get involved. For more information about GLC contact Anne Williams, firstname.lastname@example.org; for ALC contact Akosua Opokua-Achampong, email@example.com.
Not a first-year? Not a problem!
If you are returning to BC and want to get involved in UGBC, or a freshman who would like a lower-commitment position, there are still options available:
Staffer: Every committee within the Student Assembly has staffer members that conduct research, write policy proposals, and work toward implementing new policies, executing new initiatives and programs, or addressing campus issues. If you are interested in a position, please email Meredith McCaffrey at firstname.lastname@example.org or check back in September for the application.
