Strengthening the Undergraduate Learning Experience
Undergraduate departmental representatives are peer advisers who have been selected for leadership positions with the aim of strengthening the undergraduate learning experience and community within their academic departments and programs.
- Provide academic and career information to majors/minors and prospective students. Roosevelt Fellows also serve as peer curricular advisors to undergraduates, although their role and responsibilities differ from that of UDRs. What is the difference between a UDR and a Roosevelt Fellow?
- Organize meetings with students and/or group informational sessions on topics related to their program (outside speakers, alumni/career panels, internships, research opportunities).
- Disseminate information on current department/program events, activities and other relevant happenings.
- Serve as ambassadors for the department/program at university-wide events such as Admitted Students Day and the Academic Fair.
Each of the School of Arts and Sciences' majors and minors has at least one UDR. Candidates are chosen each spring through a competitive process for the following academic year.
