The Memorial Union organization is about building community. We believe that community contributes fundamentally to the quality of life of individuals and campus society. The Memorial Union is an integration of Facilities and Services: MU Administration, MU Building Services and Technology, MU Guest Services, MU Retail Food Services, The Basement, MU Art Gallery, MU Graphic Design and Marketing, and MU Service/Facilities Assessment & Research.
The purpose of the Memorial Union is to provide a center for social, cultural and recreational programs and services to students, staff, faculty and guests of Oregon State University; to provide opportunities for experience in social responsibility and leadership; to supplement University instruction by developing high ideals of university sprit, citizenship and private life.
The primary role of the Memorial Union President is to serve the student body by ensuring student focus in the programs, policies and operation of the Memorial Union organization. This will be fulfilled by serving on various university committees, the MU Leadership Team, acting as Chairperson of the MU Advisory Board, and working directly with the students of all of the MU Organizations departments.
