Council of Representatives
Each major will have one representative elected within their major, by their peers. In addition, there will be three first year representatives appointed by the Vice President and approved by a two-thirds vote of the Council of Representatives every year in the month of September. These students will represent both first year students and students who are undecided at the beginning of the academic year.
Five Standing Committees have been composed in order to facilitate and ensure that all issues in each division/department are addressed by the appropriate committee:
Standing Committee for Community Involvement
Standing Committee for Public Relations
Standing Committee for Athletics
Standing Committee for Internal Affairs
Standing Committee for Social Affairs
