College Committees with Student Representation


Various faculty and trustee committees with student members make recommendations to the faculty, the president or the trustees, and, in some cases, handle specialized functions. Committees with student members are listed below. Student representatives are selected by the appropriate individual or group.  To apply for one of these positions, visit the Office of Student Affairs and in the case of the Athletic Council, see the Director of Athletics.

Athletic Council

The Council serves in an advisory capacity to the Director of Athletics regarding the intercollegiate athletic program.

Honor and Conduct Board

Ten students serve on the Board along with ten faculty members. It hears cases regarding student conduct and academic dishonesty.

Student Visitors to the Board of Trustees

Three student visitors serve as liaison persons between the students and the Board of Trustees. Students are selected in their sophomore year for a term of three years.

All College Council

The All College Council is an advisory body to students, faculty, and administrative leaders. While the council has no specific area of responsibility or authority, it is composed of campus leaders who serve in positions that can affect changes discussed by the Council. Thus, it provides a forum of discussion for campus issues, particularly those that affect several parts of the community. Additionally, it allows student, faculty, and administrative leaders to be advised by representatives of the whole community. Members of the All College Council include:

  • Students: SGA Executive Board, Student Engagement event programming board, Inter-Greek Council, Multicultural Student Association, and the Commuter Student Association.
  • Faculty: Three faculty-elected members of the Student-Faculty Relations Committee
  • Administrators: College President, Vice President for Administration and Finance, and Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students

Student Government Association

The SGA is the central coordinating body that serves to promote the general welfare of the student body and to express a student voice in the affairs of the College. Voting members of the SGA include the Executive Board, Cabinet Members, and Community Presidents. The Executive Board leads the SGA and is elected by the student body in the spring for the upcoming school year. SGA Cabinet members are appointed members that serve as a chairperson to one of the following committees: Academic Affairs, Athletics, Student Engagement, College Services, Communications, Finance, and SGA Affairs. Community Presidents are elected at the beginning of the school year, from each one of the residence halls, North Village, Garden Apartments, Pennsylvania Avenue, and the Commuter Student Association.

President: Nicholas Bender

Vice President: Zach Weeder

Treasurer: Hayoung Kim

Secretary: Robert Kapp

Organization’s Council

The Organization’s Council is the central means of communication from clubs and organizations on campus. The purpose of the council is to communicate and facilitate campus-wide initiatives, events, and activities. Members of the Organization’s Council are representatives of the various clubs and organizations. These representatives participate in representing their constituencies through committees on the Student Government Association.

Senior Class Council

The Senior Class Council is responsible for the planning and coordinating of all senior class events, fundraisers, and activities throughout the school year. Rising seniors elect members of the Senior Class Council one-year prior to the graduation of the class.
