NEOMED Student Council (NSC)
The NEOMED Student Council (NSC) is a critical component of the University. Elected members of NSC serve as the class representatives to the University faculty and administration. NSC members have demonstrated leadership, compassion, professionalism and dedication in their work and in support of the University. They have developed a tradition of excellence and embrace growth and change as opportunities for further distinction. NSC members choose to run for election to these positions and this deep sense of commitment has been translated into an action agenda of constant innovation and a dedication to meet challenges.
Members work closely with Student Services and other administrative departments to facilitate the implementation of new initiatives or to advocate on behalf of students for improvements or changes. NSC fosters fellowship, support and cooperation in student-faculty relations. NSC also supports a wide range of student organization activities that promote learning beyond the curricular experience. NSC also encourages and helps student groups to develop and fulfill community service projects throughout the year.
NSC also serves as the umbrella organization overseeing all other student organizations. In this capacity, NSC approves all monies appropriated from student activity fees and oversees all appointments of student representatives to the Colleges’ committees.
