The time commitment will average 1 meeting per month totaling 1-2 hours a month. While most Boards and Committees will not begin meeting until October, some may ask for summer commitments.

Most University Boards and Committees meet virtually; your specific University Boards and Committees Advisor will work with the group on what options are available and the most accessible for the group.
