The Student Life Council (SLC) is responsible for recommending campuswide student life policies to the Vice President for Student Affairs, the President's Executive Staff, and other groups that establish policies. It establishes committees to review policies and maintains permanent subcommittees including Family Day, the Performing Arts Series at Shepherd, Program Board, Student Recognition Day, and the Leadership Conference at Shepherd. Its membership includes the SGA President, Program Board President, six students elected at-large, three faculty members elected by the Faculty Senate, the Vice President for Student Affairs or Dean of Students, and for staff members appointed to by the Vice President for Student Affairs.
SLC meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 5:00 pm in the Student Center. Meetings are open to any student who would like to attend. If you are interested in becoming a SLC board member, contact the Student Government Association.
After an organization completes the "Intent to Organize" Form and returns it to the Student Affairs Office, the organizational leaders must go before the SLC to request recognition. Contact the Director of Student Development or the Secretary of the Student Life Council and ask to be placed on the agenda for the next SLC meeting. Be prepared to answer questions about your group’s purpose, goals, plans, etc. Once the Student Life Council votes to grant recognition to your group, you earn all the privileges and responsibilities of a club.
