Title: Class Representative

FSU Representative/Program Leader: Advocacy and Communications Coordinator


The Class Representative Program comprises student volunteers dedicated to representing their peers and addressing their viewpoints, ideas, and issues within the Fanshawe Student Union and College affairs. Open to all full-time Fanshawe College students, there are no restrictions on the number of representatives per program, providing an inclusive platform for student involvement and advocacy.

Position Expectations

Class Representatives play a pivotal role in supporting the Fanshawe Student Union by gathering and addressing student opinions and concerns, while also disseminating crucial information within their respective programs. Through this role, individuals cultivate a diverse skill set encompassing feedback exchange, advocacy, effective communication (both oral and written), presentation proficiency, problem-solving abilities, conflict resolution, and leadership qualities.

The minimum time commitment for Class Representatives entails 1-2 hours per month to attend Fanshawe Student Union meetings, in addition to dedicating extra time for communication with fellow students and professors, along with the completion of monthly reports summarizing these interactions.
