Community Councils

Community Council is a great way to get involved in your community and build leadership skills.

Each Community Council has an executive board and a general membership that plan events and provide opportunities for their community. Additionally, each Community Council sends at least one representative to the larger governing body of Residence Halls Advisory Council (RHAC), Black Student Association (BSA), and MUNDO.

Community Councils are sometimes also called activity boards or action councils. All can act as a place for the voice of the community to be heard, a place to meet people, a creative source for event planning, and a place that provides opportunities to leave a positive impact on campus and in the community.
