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 2013-2014 are now CLOSED
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding applications.
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.>> Applications
