How to Join

UFB representatives are elected in campus-wide votes that take place each spring. In order to run for a board position for the 2019-2020 school year (starting Fall 2019), you must take part in the election this March! The precise date and time of the elections process is not yet decided, but the timeline from last year can be found here: http://www.brownucs.org/elections2018/.

Broadly, here are the steps that you need to take:

  1. Attend a candidate info session in the beginning of March.

  2. Gather signatures and create a “Candidate Statement” outlining why you want to join the board to become eligible to run.

  3. Attend the candidate’s meeting in mid-March and bring your signatures and Candidate Statement to become an official candidate.

  4. Campaign online and/or on campus to gather votes.

  5. Get elected in campus-wide vote at the end of March. The 8 candidates with the most votes for board seats are elected to join UFB.

Current board members are required to run each year to maintain their position on UFB, and therefore have to follow all of the same steps each Spring. Reach out if you have any questions or would like to learn more about what we do!
