The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) Reps are student leaders who are engaged and interested in furthering the mission of the College and sharing their own CHSS story. The CHSS Reps will serve as the “external student face” of the College to a variety of stakeholders including parents, students and alumni. More specifically, the CHSS Reps will:  

  • Support students and faculty during summer and winter orientation sessions by assisting with advising processes and answering student questions
  • Engage with students and parents during CHSS events such as open houses and Homecoming by sharing College-specific information
  • Liaise with the CHSS student organizations and honor societies, as well as the CHSS Student Advisory Council
  • Represent the College in various print and media public relations efforts
  • Assist with special guests visits (distinguished faculty, alumni, donors, etc.) to the College

  • Maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA
  • Be free of academic integrity and conduct-related violations
  • Have the ability to access campus throughout the summer months (for 2-3 orientation sessions)


In addition to the invaluable personal and professional development CHSS Reps will gain through their employment, they also will be paid a stipend of $300 per semester for approximately 30 hours of work per semester, including training.

Start Date and Training

Training for the CHSS Reps will occur on April 24th, 2020. Compensation will begin at that time. CHSS Reps should expect to also attend at least 3 summer orientation sessions (2-3 hours each). This is a year-long commitment with the term ending on April 30th, 2021.
