Student Council

cayla troyerDear College of Health Professions Students:

My name is Cayla Troyer and I am the College of Health Professions Student Council President for 2014-2015.  On behalf of the entire UAMS College of Health Professions Student Council, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you as a UAMS student.  As we head into another school year here at UAMS, I am looking forward to getting College of Health Professions Student Council meetings started and meeting all of the incoming members from each program.

College of Health Professions Student Council is a great opportunity to meet fellow students, get involved with service project opportunities, and to give back to those in need.  Last year in Student Council, we had wonderful opportunities including making supper for the families at the Ronald McDonald House and painting pumpkins and playing holiday games with the children at the Dorcas House.  These simple opportunities make such a huge impression on families everywhere, and it is so great sharing those memories with them, as well as other friends in Student Council.  We already have several ideas for additional service projects to partake in for the 2014-2015 school year, and we hope that you can be a part of them!

We have a Facebook page and Student Council webpage that you may refer to for upcoming service projects, fundraisers, upcoming meeting dates, information on student parking, as well as the College of Health Professions Student Council constitution and bylaws.  These are great ways to access information regarding the fun things Student Council will take part in this year.

At the start of each school year, we take two representatives from each program who are considered the spokespersons from that program and are required to attend each meeting.  If someone is not elected, but is still interested in attending the meetings, we gladly welcome them!  The College of Health Professions Student Council is always looking for great and driven members, so if you are interested or would like more information, please contact me by e-mail at  I look forward to meeting all of the new members, and truly hope you enjoy your 2014-2015 school year here at UAMS!

Cayla Troyer
Student Council President
