The Student Governing Board meets monthly during the fall and winter semesters and every other month during the spring and summer semesters. The Student Governing Board also holds committee meetings once a month in addition to various work group meetings.
Governors receive excellent training and support in areas of board governance and committee work. Past year’s members of Students’ Council described their experiences as successful, beneficial, professional and an overall excellent opportunity where their skills were utilized and valued, as well as enhanced through the experience of serving on the board.
