Student leadership is vital to the success of the TUMB. We refer to our leadership team as “SMAC”, which stands for Student Marching Advisory Council. Field SMAC consists of our drum majors and section leaders. These students play a significant role in the show planning and instructional process as part of an educational lab experience. Administrative SMAC consists of our crews’ and committees’ members. Students in these roles fulfill organizational tasks such as field set up, banquet planning, and documenting our season for historical purposes. We are proud to have established a world-class university marching band that fosters student ownership as we prepare our band members to be successful educators and professionals.
