Undergraduate Business Council

FAQs

What is the Undergraduate Business Council? 

UBC is a student-run umbrella organization that oversees other Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) in the Foster School of Business. We aim to increase community by raising awareness to different Foster-wide events that are both hosted by UBC and other organizations. 

What are major events we host?

UBC hosts Service Month, Spotlight Dinner, Business Week, Blood Drives, Week of Welcome, monthly community engagement events, and UBC Social Hours. For more information on specific events, explore our website!

What are our goals for the Undergraduate Business Council? 

The main goals are to increase community within Foster, bring and celebrate diversity in the Foster community, help RSOs reach more students, and to help students find interesting RSOs!

What are common qualities and skills we look for in new officers?

Common qualities and skills that we look for are passion for community engagement and outreach, ability to lead and work in a team, and interest in becoming a student that represents Foster. We are looking for students who are excited about engaging the Foster community in diverse events and activities. 

What is our involvement with RSO’s? 

UBC helps regulate RSO requirements, communicate important information to each RSO, assist RSOs in marketing, and build community among leaders in Foster.

How does UBC tackle inclusion and diversity in the Foster community?

In order to tackle inclusion and diversity, UBC will be introducing a new role in the next team called VP of Diversity. They will be working with the Undergraduate Diversity Systems to encourage diverse participation and drive initiatives that help Foster become a more welcoming place for people of different backgrounds.
