Student Representatives

Every year, students will elect two undergraduate representatives and one graduate student representative to attend Department Faculty/Staff meetings and have time in each meeting to raise issues and make suggestions. They may also weigh in on issues addressed in the faculty meeting. 

The student representatives are:

Undergraduate: Patrick Saint Ange, 2022-23 elections for additional reps will be held in the beginning of Fall 2022. 

Graduate: Caleb Dransfield 

The student representatives and the Chair have meetings to determine topics on which the dept. would like feedback from the majors and minors. Students can contact student representatives to bring issues to full faculty/staff meetings.

Area Heads

The Theatre Department has designated area heads within our concentrations. These faculty members oversee these departments in relation to classes and productions. Students can contact each of these individuals if they have ideas or concerns in these areas:

Dance: David Wynen
Design & Technical Theater: Laura Fine Hawkes
Musical Theatre: Tommy Iafrate

All majors are assigned a faculty advisor in their area of study by the end of their first year. Students are encouraged to speak with their direct faculty advisors for academic advice and post-graduate planning. 

Urgent Department Issues

If you have an urgent concern that involves a faculty or staff member, students can contact Barbara Wolfe as a first step ( It is helpful for her to know students’ concerns firsthand and offer further options for resolution or next steps to take towards resolution. These conversations can be confidential at your choice, except for mandated report items, where physical/personal harm and safety is of concern. 

Anonymous Reporting

We offer a Feedback Form for the Theatre Department. This is a general purpose feedback form where students, faculty and staff may submit feedback (kudos, concerns, incidents and/or ideas) to the department chair. This feedback can relate to production, classes and general activity within the department. This is open to anyone who is a major, minor, or student in a production or a class.

This form can be submitted anonymously or confidentially. If you wish for someone to get in touch with you about your feedback, please submit your email address. The form can be used for anything from suggestions/requests to serious problems. The report will not include an originating email address and is only seen by the department chair.
