Election to the Student Board is a competitive process. Being a part of the Student Board is an opportunity for students to develop professional networks and leadership skills, and to experience working with the non-profit sector. Student Board members receive training in marketing, fundraising, public speaking, event management, and strategic planning, and practice these skills in many ways during their year-long term. The application for an IELP representative for the 2019-2020 Student Board is currently open. Applications are accepted until the position is filled. Only IELP students who will be at UW during the 2019-2020 school year are eligible.
