Disability Studies Student Representative
What is a student representative?
Student representatives are elected by the student body each year in the fall semester. The school sends a call to all students by email at the beginning of the semester. There is an election process, followed by voting and ultimately the student representatives are annouced by the program secretaries via e-mail. The Disability Studies Program has one student representative per academic year.
The student representatives represent their cohort in various school meetings. They are required to attend school council and other meetings as outlined in the various job descriptions. They bring forward student concerns and relay information back to students. They are a vital part of the school! We strongly encourage students to be a student representative.
If you would like to contact your student rep, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your program and year of study. The school will forward your information to the appropriate student representative.
Please note we will be issuing the Student Rep process within the few weeks of classes. The Program Secretary will be emailing out information to all Disability Studies students. Please see information on Zoe Dumouchelle, 2021-2022 Disability Studies Student Rep below.
