Personal Development. Professional Achievement.
The Won Institute Student Council is a group of students from various academic programs and program years who join on a self-selected, volunteer basis. They represent the student voice for the Won Institute student body. The student council meets every month to discuss relevant topics focused on strengthening and improving the student experience. Students plan outreach and educational opportunities for themselves, staff, faculty and community members. A student advisor is assigned to the council and they are responsible for supporting and facilitating its meetings and events.
Students interested in become student representatives are encouraged to email the Librarian at [email protected].
