The K-State Student Union Governing Board (UGB) serves as the general governing and policy-making body of the Union. UGB consists of 18 voting members: 14 students and four faculty members or administrators. Non-voting members of the Union staff include a programming staff member, an operations staff member, the administrative assistant and an ex-officio member. 

Five of the student positions are appointed from entities on campus, including one representative each from Student Senate, Union Program Council, K-State Alumni Association Student Alumni Board, Union Ambassadors, Graduate Student Council and a representative from any organization categorized as multicultural with the Office of Student Activities and Services.

The student body elects the eight remaining student positions during the Student Governing Association general election in March. Six of these positions are elected for a two-year term and two are elected for a one-year term. Voting members of UGB elect the president, vice president and secretary offices.

Those interested in running for UGB office must file for Student Governing Association general elections by logging into KSIS.
