Additional information about the
role and responsibilities of
NATS-AID volunteers
Who are Class Reps?
   Students in all NATS courses are encouraged to
    elect class representatives early in the course.

   Such volunteers will act as liaisons between their
    fellow classmates and the instructor, NATS-AID
    Chair (Asma Fatehi), as well as the Director of
    Natural Science Division.

   Class reps are encouraged to ‘keep a pulse’ on
    the progress of the course and report to the Chair
    and the Director in a meeting per term each, and
    instructor.

   They also help facilitate the meeting of study
    groups, as well as relay information from NATS-
    AID to students. It is a great personal
    development experience, as well as resume-
    booster!

   If you are interested in volunteering for the Class
    Rep position(s), please speak to your instructor.
Do you need help with your course?
Do you want to achieve a higher grade?
