What is Program Board?

The Shepherd University Program Board (PB)

A subcommittee of the Student Life Council at Shepherd is made up of student leaders who create community on campus by sponsoring diverse, inclusive programming to educate, entertain, and engage students. Program Board Executive Leadership Team members develop strong leadership skills and learn how to plan, market, and assess diverse cultural, recreational, educational, and community-building programs.  Program Board's efforts support the core values of the University and the Division of Student Affairs: student learning; engagement; integrity; accessibility; community; social justice/diversity; and retention.
