The Union Executive Board is the core of the Union. It is comprised of elected members and additional members appointed to carry out specific jobs for the year. The Executive Board serves to represent the student voice within the Brandeis Community and to the greater public. One specific way the Executive Board pursues this mission is by bringing student issues to the attention of the Brandeis Administration. The Executive Board is also responsible for overseeing and managing the operations of the Union at large.
The Executive Board is made up of the President, the Vice President, the Secretary, the Treasurer, and at least one Student Representative to the Board of Trustees. Typically, a second Representative to the Board, Chief of Staff, and Executive Senator are also appointed annually. Finally, additional members of the Brandeis community are appointed by each President to carry out specific jobs. To see who is serving on your Executive Board this year, see our Executive Board members page.
In addition to representing the student voice in various conversations at Brandeis, the Executive Board also pursues its own policy goals in line with student wants and needs. This year, the Executive Board is committed to focusing on issues of diversity and inclusion, sexual assault prevention, and mental health awareness on campus on a Union-wide level. We are, however, also working on a host of other issues.
Union Finance Audit - The Student Union is currently in an ongoing investigation of internal funding structures and policies. Much of this work is a natural extension of last year's Allocations Board reforms and their implementation. We are constantly looking for more effective ways to implement club funding at Brandeis.
