The Student IDEA Board

The Student IDEA Board is an advisory board comprised of students from various programs who work closely with members of the alliance to:

  • develop new ideas and provide feedback and insights on Great Plains IDEA initiatives
  • help Great Plains IDEA achieve its mission to serve learners from diverse backgrounds through a virtual community
  • enhance the virtual learning environment for the Great Plains IDEA community

Student IDEA Board Members serve a one-year term starting in the Fall semester.  Direct questions about the IDEA Board to Amanda Burris.
