The Representation & Engagement Programs (REP) exist to provide the resources, services, and support necessary to ensure student representation in decisions that impact students at the university, local, state, and federal levels; to promote effective citizenship and civic engagement through services, programs, and collaboration.
The REP is in Viking Union 435 near the Wellness Outreach Center.
