Boards

Board of Multicultural Student Affairs

The Board of Multicultural Student Affairs at Providence College is a student-based organization that represents all of the cultural societies on campus. The individual clubs, and the B.M.S.A. as a whole, encourage all students to share in each other’s rich cultural backgrounds in a manner that is educational and respectful, yet fun and stimulating. In addition, the B.M.S.A. assists the cultural societies in their day-to-day functions and also helps to coordinate and promote club events.  To learn more about B.M.S.A., contact their advisor, Maggie Valton, Assistant Director of Student Activities & Cultural Programming at mkeach@providence.edu.

Board of Programmers

The Board of Programmers is a student- run organization that plans a majority of the events at Providence College. We are made up of ten committees and an executive board, each geared toward planning a variety of events to meet every student’s interests. Committees include entertainment, fine arts, travel, social, etc. The Board of Programmers’ goal is to enrich your immersion in the PC community by bringing you the most fun and diverse events to make the most of your four years at Providence College.   Visit BOP’s information page to learn more.

Intramural Athletic Board

The Intramural Athletic Board (I.A.B.) consists of students dedicated to organizing and overseeing the general flow of intramural sporting activities. The members of IAB work to create a competitive, fun, and engaging atmosphere for all students who want to continue their athletic careers into college without the commitment of Division 1 or club sports. With over half of the student population at PC participating in intramurals, the goal of our club is to continue creating an environment for students to enjoy playing recreational sports while also experiencing friendly competition. We work to foster our student body’s athletic passions on and off the playing field.  To learn more about the intramural programs at PC, visit the Office of Recreational Sports’ site.

Student Advisory Board (SAB)

The Student Advisory Board (SAB), established by the PCSB in 2013, is a collaborative effort between student leaders and the PCSB Dean’s Office to maximize the value of the undergraduate experience within the School of Business. The SAB is composed of students of the respective PCSB clubs and organizations. Members meet bi-weekly, and the president of the Future Friar Executives Board (FFE) facilitates the meetings. SAB, in collaboration with FFE, organizes events, for example, a schoolwide barbecue to celebrate the end of the school year. These events bolster the School of Business community environment, which is further improved by SAB when it acts as a sounding board for student concerns on campus.

Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC)

SAAC is a registered student organization that provides student-athletes with the education and experiences needed to assist them in bridging the gap from college to the professional world, and to encourage meaningful contributions to their communities. Membership consists of four executive board members, team representatives and additional student-athletes seeking involvement in programming provided by SAAC. SAAC plans activities consistent with the three commitments of the Life Skills program: personal development, community service, and career development.
