Student speakingParticipate in department governance and add a nice line to your resume by serving on one of the following committees:


  • Undergraduate Studies: Considers and generates big-picture pedagogical and administrative initiatives
  • Teaching Awards: Identifies and compiles application materials for outstanding teachers in the department
  • Friends of History: Liaisons with the department's alumni and fundraising body
  • History@Illinois: Produces the department's annual newsletter

We issue a call for volunteers to serve on these committees each fall at the beginning of the semester. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Kristin Hoganson, Director of Undergraduate Studies.
