Undergraduate Departmental Representatives

Undergraduate Departmental Representatives (UDR) serve as a resource and representative for fellow majors and potential majors, and bring student concerns and ideas to the department faculty. They provide open avenues of communication between undergraduate students and departmental faculty. UDRs serve as student representatives, organize events for majors and other interested students and provide feedback to the department regarding undergraduate issues including but not limited to scheduling course offerings and more. They are your main contact or liaison to the psychology department.
