Join the Illini Moms Board

The Moms Association at the University of Illinois was created in 1923 (yes, 100 years ago!) for the purpose of promoting the welfare and interest of the University and its students. The Board of Directors is made up of committed volunteers that are moms and mom figures in the life of a

UIUC student. 

Board membership is an extraordinary opportunity for individuals that are passionate about the University and the mission of the Association. The Moms Association seeks board members with experience in areas such as business, government, education, human services, philanthropy, human resources, accounting and other disciplines as well as those that have a passion for volunteering.

The board meets nine times per year, usually on the third Sunday of the month.

Board Member applications should be submitted by September 15 for the following academic school year.  Interested individuals may submit an application throughout the year for future consideration, but new board members are generally selected and seated every Fall.                         

We hope you will consider joining our dynamic group of Illini Moms!

Become an Illini Moms Ambassador!

​The Illini Moms Ambassadors are a volunteer committee of the Moms Association of the University of Illinois who build relationships with Moms and Mom figures of UIUC students (both in person and through social media), integrate into the UIUC community by attending on-campus events, and help the Moms Association volunteer in ways that make the UIUC experience a positive one for all families.


Examples of past events in which we need volunteers include: Selling Illini Moms merchandise at the Moms Weekend; speaking to parents at the new student welcome day; ​and being a part of the University’s dialogue of change.
