Class Representatives

Class Representatives are elected by their classmates to

  • work across campuses to be the main agents in resolving class-wide concerns
  • coordinate feedback and engage with your faculty class advisor, student services, professional education, and college leadership to improve the student experience
  • facilitate communication about course changes, schedule issues, and college happenings  
  • serve as liaisons between the class and College Board
  • engage with the Student Initiative for Integrity in Pharmacy (SIIP)

More details about the responsibilities of class representatives can be found in the Class Representative Guide.  Class advisors are faculty who volunteer to help class representatives address course-related issues.
