The purpose of the Board to advise the Department of Campus Rec on the long-term operation of the Student Recreation Center and the programs housed under Campus Rec. Board members will ensure department goals and objectives are aligned with the University’s strategic plan as well as meeting the needs of Portland State students and other users of Campus Rec resources.
The Advisory Board typically meets monthly on Fridays from 9-11 with additional meetings in Fall Quarter for budget preparation. It is comprised of students and faculty, staff, alumni, or administrators who are Student Rec Center members.
The Advisory Board will review, advise, support and offer recommendations on:
- Annual budget for submission to and approval by the ASPSU and University President
- Program development and expansion
- Program assessment
- Facility scheduling and operating hours
- Program and facility use eligibility
- Capital projects and improvements
- Major equipment purchases
Any undergraduate or graduate student may apply to be an Advisory Board member if you meet the following requirements: you must complete (receive a passing grade) in six undergraduate credit hours or five graduate credits per term, maintain a PSU cumulative GPA of 2.0 (undergraduate) or 3.0 (graduate) and be in good academic standing with the University. You are allowed one term per every consecutive 12 months in which you may be on the Board but do not need to meet the minimum enrollment requirement (this is not granted retroactively).
Applications are now OPEN and accepted on a rolling basis until the Advisory Board is filled. We currently need three students.
If you have questions or need the application in an alternate format, please contact Alex Accetta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
