Student Council

The Student Council serves as the voice of the student body and liaison to the faculty and the administration. Members are elected on an annual basis and include a mixture of representatives from departments, class representatives, and an international student representative. The Council meets regularly with the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, communicates student concerns to the administration, and responds to issues raised by the administration. Students are encouraged to bring their concerns to their elected representatives. Students can also leave notes for their representatives in their representative's student mailboxes or email them at
