NUPD Advisory Board Application for Students
The NUPD Advisory Board currently comprises students, faculty, staff, and a member of the Boston community. As board members transition off or graduate, it is imperative to the function of the board to maintain the right composition of members.
This application serves as a method to identify and select new members. In addition to having passion for and knowledge of the field, applicants must be willing to listen and learn from their peers to maintain the respectful and productive climate that has been established. This board requires both a commitment of at least five hours a month and a strong desire to improve our Northeastern community.
To ensure a smooth transition, newly selected members will go through an on-boarding phase that includes shadowing current members, viewing a series of presentations, and completing select readings.
This specific application is for students. Applicants may nominate themselves or be nominated by fellow students, faculty, or staff. The deadline to apply is April 10.
