Joint Council

A representative body of campus student organizations involved in and dedicated to promoting diversity, Inclusive Excellence, and/or social justice. The Cultural Center provides the structure and facilitation for the Council, with the goal of increased communication, outreach, and accountability among member organizations.

The Council meets monthly each quarter and provides a platform for collaborating on events and issues, avoiding programmatic competition, addressing campus climate concerns, and providing organizational development opportunities. Representatives are student leaders selected by their affiliated organization.

The annual Joint Council Leadership Development Retreat brings together member organization leaders to facilitate leadership development at an individual level, an organization level, and as a larger community. Sessions focus on improving participants' understanding of leadership within the context of their organization, including areas such as meeting management, self-care, public speaking, and action planning. Lastly, the program aims to promote collaboration among the leaders and thereby, member organizations.

Student organizations who feel they would contribute to and benefit from active membership should contact the Joint Council advisor via, with an explanation of how their mission and activities relate.
