UDR Award Criteria

We asked Brandeis students, faculty, and staff are to nominate outstanding Undergraduate Departmental Representatives (UDRs) for the annual UDR Award. These representatives go above and beyond the call of duty by:

  • Serving as a resource/representative to fellow and prospective majors and minors.
  • Being accessible and demonstrating a commitment to advising fellow students.
  • Being proactive in responding to the needs of his/her department/program.
  • Promoting community amongst students and faculty within the department/program.
  • Creating a presence for the department/program throughout the Brandeis community and serving as an advocate for their major/minor.

All current UDRs and UDR teams were eligible for nomination, and the winners will receive an award of $100 to be presented at the annual Prizes and Awards ceremony.
