The Economics Undergraduate Board serves as a liaison between the undergraduate student body and the Economics Department faculty and staff. We are currently seeking Economics Majors with sophomore or junior standing who would be interested in being a part of the Board. We are looking for students of strong academic standing who are looking to build their leadership credentials and involvement within the department. Equally important, applicants should be organized, energetic, and motivated about all things economics!
Board members meet twice a month and are assigned to specific projects, such as the undergraduate newsletter The Economizer, career-building events, and quarterly Economics class seminars. We also provide weekly tutoring for students in introductory economics classes.
For more details about applying, see the attached application below. The deadline is Monday March 18th!
EUB activities and services are described on our website.
