The College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) is an event held by the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) in which teams representing approximately 70 colleges from around the world compete in a poetry slam tournament. The next CUPSI will be held at the University of Illinois – Chicago in April 2017. In ACUI’s message, this is an event for colleges “to compete for top honors and to share their artistry and voices. Everyone is enriched by sharing poetry, embracing the value of inclusivity, and supporting a program in which ‘Everyone’s voice is welcome.’ Flux will have four qualifier slam competitions in the Fall semester of UVa. The top eight ranked performers from these qualifiers will move onto finals in December where the top five will become the 2017 Flux Slam Team representing UVa at CUPSI in April.
