College Union Programming Board (CUPB)

CUPB is a student run activities committee that is making a comeback at QC! Due to COVID-19, CUPB has not been in full swing for a few years, but we are currently seeking out interested students to join for the upcoming academic year (Fall 2023- Spring 2024).

The goal of CUPB is to provide diversified quality entertainment, cultural, and recreational activities for the benefit and enjoyment of the Queens College campus community. CUPB works to provide all students with various opportunities for leadership development, group planning experiences, and cultivating individual vocational and avocational skills through the creation, planning, and promotion of establishing events on campus. Additionally, those involved with the activities planning and management of CUPB events work to develop professional working relationships and event collaborations with campus partners.
