The Reitz Union Board of Managers is a university-wide standing committee chaired by a student, with a voting student majority. This presidentially appointed committee is comprised of twelve student members and six faculty members. The appointment term for student members is one year, beginning in August of each year. Faculty members serve a three-year term.

The Reitz Union Board of Managers oversees policies pertaining to facility usage and programming, develops long range plans for development and renovation of facilities, implements sustainability initiatives, reviews marketing and promotion functions, oversees financial policies, operating budgets, and facility use rates, and allocates student organization office and storage space.

Student Application and Selection Process: Applications for the Board of Managers open in the spring semester each year. A selection committee, composed of three students and two faculty members interviews applicants and recommends sixteen names to the Student Body President. The Student Body President selects the twelve student board members and forwards the recommendations to the President of the university through the Vice President for the Division of Student Life.
