Collegiate Advisory Committee

Started in 2012, the AEPhi Collegiate Advisory Committee is the undergraduate voice to the volunteers who work to support them.  CAC members are called upon at various times throughout the academic year to provide insight and ideas in their areas of interest and specialty.  The Collegiate Advisory Committee provides National Council an informed perspective on modern student life as well as fresh and new ideas.  The CAC is also a sounding board for new programs and policies, when needed.

Members are chosen based on campus activities, chapter participation, leadership history, diverse interests and experience, special talents and future individual goals.  Members do not need to be or have been a chapter officer to be considered for the Collegiate Advisory Committee.   Members will not be asked to meet in person, but rather will work together through conference calls and emails.  Members do need to be a junior or senior and the application must be accompanied with a letter of recommendation either from the applicant’s chapter advisor or another national volunteer. 

The application for 2018-19 will be available in April. 

Lauren Cohen, Rebecca Saltzman, Sophie Barnes and Kelly Truitt were selected by national council to serve on AEPhi’s first ever Collegiate Advisory Committee.  Here is some information about the 2017-2018 Collegiate Advisory Members:
