Ohio Union Council

The Ohio Union Council is responsible for establishing general policy on matters such as financial planning, facility use, student development and public and campus relations. The council meets monthly to discuss a wide range of topics affecting the Ohio Union and the student body. 

Additionally, the Ohio Union Activities Board (OUAB) reports to the Ohio Union Council each month so the council can ensure OUAB's programming meets the needs of undergraduate, graduate and professional students.
