Community Association of PSR (CAPSR)
What is CAPSR?
The Community Association of PSR (CAPSR) is made up of the whole PSR student community. All students registered in PSR programs and their partners and families are CAPSR members. The Association's activities, events, and programs are spearheaded by CAPSR Council.
CAPSR Council’s mission is to serve as the organizing and facilitating body within the PSR community by:
- facilitating communication between various members of the PSR community, particularly among students and between students and PSR's administration and faculty and staff;
- strengthening the bonds between members of the PSR community through community oriented activities and events;
- encouraging learning and enrichment outside the classroom by empowering students to take action in seeking knowledge, community building, and problem solving;
- advocating for cooperative solutions to member's questions, suggestions, and concerns. CAPSR council seeks to foster the creation of an intentional community of mutuality and respect through modeling the practice of open and non-violent communication, and honoring teh diverse gifts and contributions of the PSR community.
CAPSR Council meets regularly and oversees the activities and concerns of CAPSR. Meetings are open to the community. Click here to view the list of council members this school year.
The Council also assists in the selection of students to represent CAPSR on the school's faculty, trustee, and other administrative committees, and provides a student voice in campus issues and policy decisions. Click here to view the list of student reps this school year.
