The president of EXCEL Campus Activities is elected by the General Body to represent its views while acting as an advocate for the university community. The president presides over the General and Executive meetings, acting as an advisor to the committees, and working with the director of student activities to maintain the budget and overall harmony of the organization.

Executive Board & Standing Committees

The Executive Board is comprised of the president and five student directors. These individuals run the day-to-day operations of the organization and preside over its meetings. The student directors are selected near the end of the spring semester and serve a one-year term. They serve as primary representatives of their committee to the general body and also act as representatives for the UT Arlington community.

EXCEL's four standing committees meet on a weekly basis throughout the fall and spring semesters.  The committees plan and implement the various events and activities of the organization–each member of EXCEL serves on a committee.  Furthermore, event chairs are selected from among a committee's membership who help manage specific events and activities. Meetings are held in the lower level of the E.H. Hereford University Center. Visit the Student Activities office (suite B140) to check in on meeting days and find the exact location of a meeting

NOTE: See below for individual committee meeting times. The standing commitees will not meet during the summer. Committee-related business shall be conducted during the Summer Board meetings on Mondays throughout the 11-week session.
