Student Representative Board

Interlochen Arts Academy's Student Representative Board (SRB) provides a meaningful voice to progress the institution forward for current and future students.

The SRB includes representatives from each class and major, as well as representatives from student groups. SRB members interact with the faculty, staff, and administration to achieve student-focused initiates and to represent the needs of their constituents. Elections for the SRB are held each fall.
