Student Involvement

USU Board of Directors

Our committee promotes the student voice in decision-making for the University Student Union (USU), Satellite Student Union (SSU) and forthcoming Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union which draw over 94,000 unique visitors monthly (though our facility is not currently open).


  • REPRESENT the student voice while advising on the $3 million annual operating budget to support the events, services and operation of the USU and SSU;
  • ENCOURAGE student involvement and development as leaders;
  • PROMOTE college life through USU Productions, providing diverse educational and social activities and entertainment; 
  • SERVE as liaisons to University faculty, students, administrators, alumni and guests.

Review our bylaws for more information about our role on campus.

Our committee of students work with representatives from across campus to ensure student union facilities and services meet the evolving needs of Fresno State students.
