Each year, the College of Arts and Sciences appoints two to three undergraduate student representatives to the Themester advisory committee.
The Themester advisory committee, made up of College faculty and students, spends the spring semester shaping the subsequent fall semester's Themester program by reviewing programming proposals and selecting events that focus on the theme. The committee meets approximately once a month.
Student committee members provide an important perspective in the creation of the overarching Themester program, and help ensure that undergraduate student needs and interests remain central.
Preference is given to undergraduate students with majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences. The College is particularly interested in students with a strong academic or personal interest in the theme. The fall 2021 theme is “Resilience.”
