Student Representatives

At the beginning of every academic year, CEU history students elect representatives who serve as a liaison between faculty and students. In addition to attending faculty meetings and assisting their classmates with academic matters, representatives participate in Student Union assemblies, organize departmental events, and contribute as active members of the larger CEU community. The one-year MA representatives include two new students, while the two-year MA representatives include one new and one returning student. PhD students typically select three representatives—two first-year students and one returning student. Below you will find the profiles of current student representatives and their contact information.
