Want to effectively implement change at Yale? Want a behind-the-scenes look at how the Yale administration operates? Have so much school spirit that youâ€™re ready to burst?
Get involved with the Yale College Council!
With direct access to administration and varied resources, Yale College Council is an extremely effective tool for students who wish to improve life at Yale; however, the key component to this successful organization is its enthusiastic, dedicated, and diverse membership. Whether you are savvy with events planning or passionate about policy reform, consider running in the upcoming election.Â We need students who care about our Yale community and who are dedicated to communicating the interests of their fellow students.
Every year the Yale College Council (YCC) Executive Board holds elections in September to select representatives to serve on the YCC, and each college elects two representatives, who serve for the entire academic year.Â They are responsible for spearheading projects on the council and acting as liaisons between the college and the council.
Additionally, undergraduates may opt to run for representative positions on the class councilsâ€”Freshman Class council (FCC), Sophomore Class Council (SoCo), and Junior Class Council (JCC). The class councils are responsible for planning class-specific events and addressing class-specific issues. Both the freshman and sophomore class councils have two representatives from each college and the junior class council has one representative from each college.
