Community Advocacy Boards

What They Do

Community Advocacy Boards (CABs) are groups of students who represent their respective Residence Halls through Programming and Advocacy initiatives. They serve as the representative voice of their hall and work collectively to lead positive change, amplify student voices, and share resources!


Together, they develop and lead programs, like potlucks and movies nights, and advocate for change within their community, such as lobbying for increased accessibility to residence hall spaces. CAB members are individuals who actively contribute to making the Residence Halls a home for students to have fun, learn new things, and grow as individuals!


This fall, each residence hall will vote to elect their CAB, consisting of:

President (1); Vice President of Advocacy (2); Vice President of Communications and Marketing (1); Vice President of Finance (1)
