Accepting Applications for Brandel Library Student Advisory Committee

What is it?

The Brandel Library Student Advisory Committee consists of student representatives who meet regularly with library staff to advise the library on policies, services, collections and spaces.

Committee members:

  • Advise in the design and implementation of library policies and services affecting students
  • Offer student perspectives on relevant library issues
  • Gather input from other NPU students
  • Inform the design and policies for the renovation of Brandel Library

The committee consists of undergraduate students who bring a diversity of perspectives, academic experiences, and personal backgrounds. Students must currently be registered at the North Park University and in good academic standing.

What is expected of members?

Your role as a member will be to offer insights about how the library can best support students’ educational experience at North Park. Members provide an informed student perspective on policies, services, collections and spaces; and participate in development of surveys and other assessment tools.

The term of service is one academic year, with possible renewal of the appointment. Meetings are generally held every 4th Wednesday per month and are approximately 2 hours. There are likely to be other opportunities to participate through focus committees, online surveys, and library events.

What would I get from the experience?

Serving on the committee will provide an opportunity to share with the library administration concerns of highest priority to students. Participation can provide connections for future references; be an opportunity to meet new friends and help create the kind of North Park community students want. You will be an influencing voice in shaping the library services and spaces important to you and your peers.
