Class Representatives

We typically recruit new Class Representatives in September and January.

The Class Representative (CR) Program at Bethune College (BC) recruits a CR for all 1st and 2nd year courses in the Faculty of Science and Lassonde School of Engineering (not limited to those listed below). CRs strengthen the ties between students and course directors/instructors by fostering communication. CRs also help students get more engaged and perform better in their courses. CRs connect with the course instructor as needed, they organize study groups and make regular in-class announcements on behalf of BC regarding workshops, seminars and social events. We provide all CRs with a forum where they can share their ideas and strategies to help their classmates, as well as leadership training, support and feedback.  CRs are recruited at the start of every semester.

If you have any questions or concerns or would like to be a Class Representative, please contact the Class Representative Program Coordinator at
