Who We Are:
The Concessions Board is allocated $100,000.00 annually from the President's Office. The money is derived through Auxiliary Enterprises such as vending machines on campus, for example. The purpose of the money allocated for dispersal by the Concessions Board is to "Make life at Auburn better for faculty, staff, students, and the community".
The Board is typically made up of 2 - 3 faculty members, 2 - 3 staff members, with one from the University bookstore permanent, 2 graduate students, and 2 undergraduate students (specific members are linked on the web at University Administration University Committees page).
The Concessions Board has nothing to do with scheduling or approving groups who wish to work concessions at athletic events. Please call Stadium Concessions at (334) 844-1212 for this information.
Proposals are made by groups involving AU faculty, staff and students and should benefit the campus at large. Any one of the officially recognized college/school organizations, sports clubs (sports clubs must filter their proposals through Campus Recreation), religious groups, musical and theater groups, academic honor societies, and special interest groups may submit proposals to the Board. A list of these organizations can be found at http://www.auburn.edu/auinvolve.
