Undergraduate Departmental Representatives
Each undergraduate departmental representative serves as a resource and representative for fellow majors and minors and potential majors and minors, and brings student concerns and/or ideas to the program faculty. They also provide feedback to the program chair, undergraduate advising head and faculty regarding scheduling problems, course offerings, etc., and help organize events for majors, minors and other interested students.
