The FYE Student Advisory Board, made up of students experiencing their first year and students recently out of their first year, will serve as liaison to the first year community, amplifying the needs of first year students and proposing program ideas that will address those needs. The Advisory Board will attend approximately monthly meetings where they will review, react to, and provide feedback on FYE's program ideas, content, processes, and delivery modes.
The Board is composed of 8-10 first-year, second-year, and transfer students representing multiple identities, diverse experiences, and a range of involvement and interest in co-curricular experiences at the University of Michigan.
Student members are expected to make a minimum of an academic year commitment and attend Student Advisory Board meetings monthly during the academic year and kickoff/closing meetings each semester. Meetings in 2020-2021 will be held virtually.
The application for the 2020-2021 Advisory Board has closed.
