Open Positions

Open Positions

Nearly 200 students each year are appointed to serve on the many committees, advisory boards and commissions that serve the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The ASUN President and the Appointments Board (a three member committee lead by the Appointments Board Chair) are charged with appointing student representatives to campus-wide open positions. These vacancies are advertised in the Daily Nebraskan and ASUN social media throughout the academic year. Applications are available on this website, and can be completed and/or printed in the ASUN office.  Additionally, questions on openings in ASUN and ASUN in general can be directed at the Appointments Board.

Completed applications need to be returned to the ASUN office directly. For most positions an interview with either the ASUN President or the Appointments Board will be required. In cases when the number of applicants is unusually high, a screening process will be used based on the written application. 

Any questions may be directed to the staff in the ASUN office at 402-472-2581 or to the Appointments Board.

All applications are due on April 15th at 4 pm at the ASUN office.
