Union Program Council

UPC Members

The Union Program Council (UPC) has served as the Union’s source of entertainment since 1956. UPC enhances the K-State experience with more than 150 cultural, recreational and educational programs each year. Partnering with registered student organizations, university departments and local businesses, UPC travels across campus and the community to provide diverse experiences to K-State and its surrounding area. Visit the UPC website for a current list of upcoming events and meetings.

The organization also offers student members many opportunities to be creative and develop leadership skills through program coordination. The various committees of UPC produce and promote comedy, film screenings, art shows, lectures, concerts and other events. UPC is always accepting new members. Stop by the next meeting and get involved in premier campus programming.
