Parent Organization: Student Affairs and Campus Life

The University Programming Council is the student organization responsible for bringing some of the biggest events to campus. We are a diverse group of students working to better the campus life at UMass Amherst. We plan and organize many different events in categories such as speakers, performing arts, concerts, late night programming and special events. In addition to planning the events, we also promote and market our events from the ground up. All events and programs produced by UPC are planned for students by students.


Some events we have done in the past include Big Chill, Spring Concert, UMass Got Talent, UMass Night Out, movies every Friday and Sunday, and many more!

If you are interested in joining UPC or would like to know about upcoming events you can e-mail the club at umass.upc@gmail.com, visit our website or visit our Facebook page!
