St Britto’s has an energetic Students Council, which is very active in representing student interests. The council organizes various activities for special occasions. The Council is composed of the President, Vice President, Treasurers, Secretaries, the Officers of Academics, Arts, Athletics, Campus Life, and Multiculturalism, and one representative from each class of all the departments.
At St.Britto’s, we talk a great deal about student self-governance, an overarching term used to describe the involvement of students in the workings of the College, and the extent to which Students-Council is a completely student-run organization. Student council is strongly related to the values and ideals of the College, including the Honor Code; students are afforded a large amount of autonomy and may use this opportunity to craft the kinds of experiences they wish to have, as well as to shape the future of St. Britto’s. Here at St. Britto’s, students of all years, all backgrounds, and all interests are given the responsibility, the resources, and the respect necessary for that to happen.
Student council manifests itself in different ways. Students- Council works with administrators, Board members, and faculty members throughout the year, advocating for the interests and needs of students. In fact, the President meets with the other representatives weekly to review and discuss ideas and student interests to the faculty. As stakeholders in the community, the voices, opinions, and ideas of students are present on almost every committee at St. Britto’s and reviews the policies and criteria.
