Student Board

As an organization that serves both students and the community at large, FIUTS depends on student engagement in executing its mission. The FIUTS Student Board is an elected group of student leaders who support our work on campus and represent the student perspective as voting members of the Board of Trustees. In addition to serving as Board Members, The Student Board produces events, takes part in ongoing leadership development, and provides strategic leadership to the staff and organization.

The FIUTS Student Board is a year-long student leadership team composed of 10-16 members. The Student Board serves a unique and important role within FIUTS, including:

  • Leading by example in advocating for FIUTS values of peace, celebration of diversity, dialogue, engagement, and community service
  • Representing the voice of the FIUTS community and promoting FIUTS to the UW campus and to greater Seattle
  • Planning and carrying out two major annual events: CulturalFest and Global Gala
  • Working with FIUTS staff as chairs of committees, convening other student leaders to provide counsel and support to all FIUTS programs
  • Serving as part of the FIUTS Board of Trustees (6 voting members are indicated by asterisk (*) below)
  • Being active stewards of the organization by: 1) Assuring its ongoing viability, vitality, and fiscal strength; 2) Acting as custodians of the organization’s mission statement and strategic plan; and 3) Adhering to the FIUTS Code of Ethics and serving the best interests of FIUTS, fairly and impartially.
