NOTE: We encourage ALL eligible students to apply for to be a PASS facilitator. Students who have applied for other Business school positions (eg. Industry placement program or international placement programs) must indicate what they have applied for on their PASS application form. Some programs clash with the PASS professional development.

It may be possible to achieve this through consultation with these programs if the PASS coordinator has all relevant information.
