University can be hard and confusing to navigate. We are happy to help you figure it out! We understand you are first and foremost a student here to study so we have compiled a list of a few handy academic resources that you can consult.
Vice-presidents of Academic Affairs
Did you know that IPPSSA has not one, but three VP Academics? If you have any questions about your program, you can always reach out to your VP Academic. We also have program representatives who would be happy to answer your questions.
- Political Science: Craig Mutter (email@example.com)
- Public Administration: Jake An (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- International Studies and Modern Languages: Taylor Sullivan(email@example.com)
Would you like to work in conjunction with the VP academic and represent the student body to profs and the faculty?
IPPSSA is looking for students that would like to sit as Program Representatives on the POL/PAP/EIL program committees. The Program Rep position liaises between the department, professors, and the student association.
The application period is from september 10th to the 22nd.
We are looking for one junior student and senior student for each program.
UNTIL SEPTEMBER 22!
