The Associated Students Program Board (ASPB) is a student run programming entity on the UC Riverside campus. Established in 1986, ASPB has programmed on campus for 30 years. ASPB is 100% student run and funded by quarterly fees paid by undergraduate students. ASPB is comprised of fourteen full-time undergraduate students that work primarily, though not exclusively, in the following six divisions: Concerts, Special Events, Films & Lectures, Contemporary Culture, Marketing, and Leadership. The ﬁrst four programming divisions plan events both large and small—all programs are voted on and approved by quorum of the board. The other two divisions provide support essential to the success of the events and the team respectively. All twelve directors, as well as the Vice-Chairperson and Marketing Chairperson, hold votes in program requests proposed by the board.
The ASPB family also hires a total of 5 Volunteers in Programming (VIPs) in the spring and fall of each school year– each VIP belonging to the Concerts, Special Events, Films & Lectures, Contemporary Culture, Marketing, and Leadership division. The VIPs contribute to the development and implementation of all events while supporting their respective divisions.
