Academic Cohort Representatives (ACRs) serve as liaisons between their cohort and faculty and the program office. ACRs steward Haas’s academic culture, facilitate feedback, and provide academic support in their respective cohorts.
Academic Culture: ACRs work to uphold the academic norms, as well as the Haas Defining Principles. They facilitate formal and informal process checks for academic culture norms. When improvements are needed, engage and influence both students and professors.
Feedback: ACRs facilitate feedback from students to faculty, from faculty to students, and from students to the program office and administration, ensuring that the academic experience at Haas is constantly improving and evolving to meet the needs of the Berkeley Leader.
Academic Support: ACRs are a source of expertise and support to their cohort-mates on all issues relating to academics, from class schedules and updating the google calendars to questions about bidding. They share resources, reminders and links with their cohort-mates in order to ensure a smooth academic experience. They communicate as necessary with important information, updates and reminders.
ACRs are selected by the program office and former student leaders. They serve for one academic year (Fall and Spring semesters)
