Honors College Student Council

The Honors Student Council is an inclusive group that aims to foster a positive and nurturing environment to members of the Honors College, to act as a liaison between Honors College students and staff/faculty, and to provide an atmosphere conducive to intensified learning for motivated students.

Student Council Executive Board

The Honors Student Council Executive Board is a team of dedicated students elected in the spring to serve as leaders of the council. The executive board currently consists of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and the directors of committees. Information about running for one of these positions will be sent out during the spring semester.

The executive board is in charge of planning events, building community, creating other programming, reaching out into the community, and communicating between the honors staff and the rest of the student body. The executive team holds weekly meetings in the honors office that are open to anyone interested in attending. Dates and times of these meetings change every semester but are posted on the Honors Student Council white board in the Honors Program office along with other upcoming events.

Additionally, any student interested in participating is encouraged to join one of the committees. Students should email hcsc.unr@gmail.com to inquire about getting involved. There are no qualifications for being an active part of the Honors Student Council. Feel free to reach out to the executive board via email with any questions or recommendations.
