Each fall, during the annual meeting of the program, students elect representatives of each class to the Student Advisory Council. Council members meet informally with the program director and serve in an advisory capacity. Student input is welcome in all matters pertaining to the program, including curriculum, procedures, and guest speakers.
The council is responsible for planning and arranging social functions where faculty and students from the various disciplines involved in the program can gather informally. Members of the council may be asked to attend the majors fair in the fall, or the sophomore open house in the spring, or to assist at program-sponsored events, such as lectures and conferences.
