FHC Student Representative Application Deadline

February 21, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

The governing body of the L&S Honors Program seeks two student members to represent Honors students. One position is available starting this semester, alongside a currently serving student representative; we seek to fill the second position starting in fall. This is a tremendous opportunity to make an impact on the Honors Program and to learn first-hand about academic governance. The two student members have voting positions on a committee eager for student input on decisions. The FHC is responsible for Honors policy in the College of Letters & Science and evaluates proposals for research and other grants.

The Honors student representatives on the Faculty Honors Committee (FHC) must make themselves available for three to four meetings (1.5 hours long) per semester, and read and evaluate materials in advance of the meetings. All meetings are held in the Washburn Observatory conference room. Meeting times for spring semester have been set:

  • Monday, March 30, 2020, 12:30-2 p.m.
  • Friday, April 24, 2020, 1:30-3 p.m.
  • Monday, May 4, 2020, 2:30-4 p.m.

Interested? Please submit a letter of interest to Prof. Sabine Gross, the L&S Honors Program’s Director, explaining why you would like to be a member of the Faculty Honors Committee. Please include:

  • details on how your background and experience will contribute to the FHC
  • your other major academic, work, and/or co-curricular commitments for the coming academic year
  • which of the above meetings you can attend

Letters of interest should be submitted to director@honors.ls.wisc.edu by the end of the day on Friday, February 21, 2020 with “FHC Student Representative” in the subject line. FHC student representatives should be members in good standing of the L&S Honors Program pursuing either the Honors in the Liberal Arts, Honors in the Major, or Comprehensive Honors degree. We are seeking applicants who will be able to serve multiple years (in other words, there’s a strong preference for those who plan to graduate May 2021 or later). 

Questions can be addressed to honors@honors.ls.wisc.edu or director@honors.ls.wisc.edu
