Bethune College Council
Bethune College Council (BCC) represents all Science students at York University. Their mandate as stated on their official website is: “to dedicate ourselves to the Bethune community in the provision of social and academic programs and services while ensuring we maintain a strong and representative voice within York University.” Visit their website to find out more or contact the BCC. Getting involved in your college’s student council or government is a great way to be an active participant in university and help support causes that are important to you and fellow students.
There are 10 student councils – one at each College. To see a list of the college councils click here.
The student caucus consists of thirteen students who are elected to represent the student body on the Science Faculty Council and committees. Faculty Council is a decision making body comprised of faculty members, the dean, staff and students. It is responsible for academic planning and curriculum, restructuring, research, and general proposals. The Student Caucus is focused on:
- Bringing a student voice to the FSc Faculty Council
- Bringing a student voice to the FSc Faculty committees
- Representing the students of the Faculty on the York University Senate
Student Caucus members become members of at least one of the committees of Faculty Council. These committee meetings give the students the opportunity to provide a student perspective on important decisions.
