Undergraduate Committee

The Undergraduate Committee represents students in the Music Department and is a forum for advocacy and communication. We hear students’ concerns and work toward solutions while also planning special events that build community. Our goal is to do whatever is necessary to improve our music students’ experience here at Cal.
