Student Board of Directors

Student Board of Directors team image What is the Student Board of Directors?
Sodexo provides services at hundreds of college and university campuses nationwide and serves thousands of students daily.  The Student Board of Directors (SBOD) was created several years ago to represent the voices of these students, and enable them to shape Sodexo’s programs and offers.  The menu in campus dining facilities, promotions, dining concepts, and other programs have been developed by the Board.  Members of the SBOD take hands-on approach and work closely with Sodexo’s culinary, marketing, and development teams. 

Who serves on the SBOD?
Each year, we accept applications for our National Board from talented undergraduates at various colleges and universities in the United States.  Applicants come from a variety of backgrounds and majors, which provides for a very diverse group of minds.  We accept applications from all Higher Education institutions, even those which are not served by Sodexo.  Members of the SBOD typically serve for 1-2 years depending on their current year of study at their institution.

What’s happening this fall?
This year, we will be expanding the reach of the SBOD through the creation of a Regional Student Board (RSB) network.  This will allow a greater number of students to have a voice and say in what we do at a more localized level.  Each RSB will help us to better understand issues on campus so we can work to improve the quality of life through solutions that Sodexo delivers.
The National SBOD will develop this network during the Fall 2013 semester, and the boards can go “live” in January.  Any students interested in being a part of a regional board can contact the SBOD member that is closest to their school. 

SBOD on Campus:
You will likely see the outcomes of last year’s SBOD projects on campus:

  • Promotions: The Board worked with our marketing team to find ways that social media could be used to engage the campus community.  They brainstormed a variety of promotions and contests which were the foundation for #Sharethatyoucare and others this year.
  • Mindful: You will notice series of health dining options on your dining locations.  The SBOD was instrumental in reviewing this program and provided valuable feedback to ensure its best fit for campus.
  • Upscale Resident Dining: Bryant University is piloting an upscale resident dining concept, which features a full service restaurant.  The SBOD worked closely with our offer development team to bring this concept to life – look for other pilots on campus this fall!
