Dear Student,

One of the key values that this University prides itself on is its commitment to student self-governance. Student self-governance adds much to our University’s distinct culture. From class councils and Student Council to Honor and UJC, student leaders are making their marks on our University and its future. If you would like to make an impact here at our University, you should consider running for an elected position in the upcoming 2019 Spring University-Wide Election.
