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 2015-2016 are now OPEN.

Please email if you have any questions regarding applications to become a UDR.

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.
