Join CAPSR Council
If you would like to be considered for election to the CAPSR Council, please submit the following to the Office of Community Life box in reception:
1) Your name, PSR Program & Year and best contact information. If you’d like to submit a photo, that would be great but not required;
2) A brief statement describing your interest in serving and any ideas you have for moving CAPSR forward as a viable and community-energizing association.
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. New Student Representatives will be solicited by early September.
