Jaguar Activities Board

Jaguar Activities Board

The Jaguar Activities Board (JAB) at the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) is a student group with a mission to build traditions and community through campus-wide programs, activities and special events.

Through campus involvement, JAB provides students with experience in planning, publicizing, budgeting, and implementing programs that will provide them with life skills to complement their academic experiences at UHV. Any student at UHV is welcome and encouraged to get involved with JAB at any time during the academic school year.

If you are interested in joining JAB, stop by the Student Life & Services office at Jaguar Hall in suite 1131 or call 361-485-4411.

Mission Statement

JAB is the campus activities board under the Department of Student Life and Services and the Division of Student Affairs. Its mission is threefold. Most directly and primarily, JAB serves as a real-world professional development opportunity for its student employees and staff. More broadly, it provides incentives and a natural beginning for new students to initiate their involvement at UHV and develop as student leaders. Most visibly, JAB is charged with the responsibility of enhancing the student’s co-curricular experience by providing unique and exciting entertainment and programming opportunities to reach, energize, and invigorate the entire student body.
