Member clubs are supported by professional staff members and student leaders who serve in various roles in the Clubhouse.
The mission of the University of Oregon Club Sports Advisory Board is to unite Club Sports as a single organization representing those students who seek a high level of athletic competition, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and leadership opportunities. The Board seeks to facilitate growth and future success of the UO Club Sports Programs.
Members consist of student leaders who advise program staff on the operations and development of the program; distribute supplemental funds to member clubs; serve as consultants to club officers; plan and implement programs designed to unite Club Sports leaders and athletes throughout the program.
The Board works collaboratively with other student leader groups on campus such as the EMU Board and ASUO (student government) to create an enriching student experience beyond the classroom.
