What is UPC?
The University Programming Council is a student organization chartered under the Office of Campus Activities. UPC offers cultural, educational, recreational, and social experiences to the entire University community.

UPC programs range from entertaining activities to educational programs on current issues. Members of the student body are encouraged to join UPC as Program Assistants.

UPC consists of two members of an Executive Team, as well as six Chairpersons and Executive Programming Assistants who work on recruitment and retention with the PA team. The Executive Board provides guidance to the Chairpersons and Program assistants who work together to develop, plan, and coordinate a variety of events and programs for the University Community.

The purpose of the University Programming Council (UPC) is to provide the students with fun opportunities to grow and to become part of the community on campus. We also provide the students with different perspectives. We give the students an escape from the mundane ritual of class and sleep, and provide a verity of performers, i.e. comediennes, singers, poets, magicians, public speakers. We are known as the HYPE kids on campus. The one passion we all have is to have fun and share experiences that we normally are unable to do, but we provide the opportunities for the students to experience new things. "We are the instruments that play in the Grand Orchestra called life, for the university to be heard and remembered."-Enjoli Page, Coordinator of UPC

Join UPC as a Programming Assistant!
Programming Assistants (PAs) aid the chairs in planning, marketing, and putting on their own events. From setting up and tearing down an event to actually aiding in the creative planning of the events, each PA plays an important role within UPC’s success.

Each semester PAs host their own event. Some past events were the Candlelight Fashion Show, Brian Brushwood: The Magician, and yearly closing celebrations. By hosting their own event, PAs gain further training and insight into the role of a UPC Chair for further retention and recruitment into future UPC positions.

The Programming Board puts out applications for these positions in both the fall and the spring. Check the UPC Calendar of Events for the dates the applications are available and when they are due.
