Undergraduate Departmental Representatives

Undergraduate departmental representatives are responsible for opening avenues of communication between undergraduates and music department faculty.

They also provide academic and career information to majors, minors and prospective students; organize meetings and information sessions on topics related to the music program; disseminate information on music department events and activities; and serve as ambassadors for the music department at universitywide events such as admitted students day and the academic fair.
