Nope! UVM Program Board (UPB) is a student-led programming organization at the University of Vermont, and is housed under Campus Programs in the Department of Student Life. UPB positions are paid - thus participation in UPB is considered employment.

Fun Fact #234

UPB and UVM BORED are the same thing, right? Easy mistake to make, but we're two different organizations! UVM Program Board (that's us!) plan, program, and create events - while our friends over at UVM BORED (like, "I'm bored!") just market all the events happening both on- and off-campus.  Our events are always on BORED though...
