- Student Executive Council (SEC)
The Student Executive Council serves as an advisory board and liaison between the student organizations and the college of Engineering. The council is comprised of the College of Engineering's student organization presidents or their designee, the Associate Dean, Director of Student Services, and the Recruitment Coordinator. Meetings are scheduled regularly once a month during the fall and spring semesters. Representatives from other departments or programs are welcome to attend regularly scheduled meetings and address the Council on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, or request feedback from the group.
- Student Leadership Council (SLC)
The Student Leadership Council serves as a liaison between the College's student organizations and the Student Government Association by allocating event funds to our registered student organizations. Student organizations may request funds from the SLC in order to support organization sponsored events or programs such as a bowling, pool, and pizza night at one of the campus' bowling alleys. Events must be open to all engineering students and require no cost to the student to participate in order to be considered for funding. The council is comprised of a diverse population of students ranging across all disciplines and classifications (Freshman-Senior).
Organizations can request funds by completing a Student Leadership Council Funds Request Form. Completed forms are due on the first Thursday of each month by 5:00 PM to Troy Mahler in room, B-223A. SLC meetings will be held the following Monday to allow organizations to present their proposal prior to a committee vote on funding.
