UDRs from past years

Undergraduate Departmental Representatives

The Undergraduate Departmental Representatives (UDR) program was first established by the Student Senate in the early to mid-1990s, and reestablished in the fall of 1998 by the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences at the suggestion of faculty and undergraduate participants of "Creating a Welcoming Campus Environment" meetings. The program is designed to open avenues of communication between undergraduate majors and departmental faculty.

Applications to be a UDR in 2014-2015 are now CLOSED.

Please email if you have any questions regarding applications which will open again in January 2015.

In participating departments, the department chair or undergraduate advising head reviews applications and selects one rising junior and/or senior major to:

  • serve as student representative(s)
  • organize department/program events and meetings
  • provide feedback to the department. 

Examples of current UDR initiatives include the creation of department e-mail lists, Web sites, student newsletters and resource libraries for majors and the organization of department/program clubs, tutoring groups, brown-bag lunch series and Meet the Majors events.

The link below goes to the UDR Council Applications which are open for JUNIORS only;  these applications are due no later than Sunday, October 5th.
