The Undergraduate Council of Students is a representative body of members committed to serving Brown’s undergraduate community. The UCS’s external work is divided between five committees: Academic and Administrative Affairs, Admissions and Student Services, Campus Life, Student Activities, and Outreach and Advocacy. These committees and their members are supported by, and work with a Media committee, as well as liaisons to the Corporation and Alumni Affairs.
Representatives from all four classes and a diverse area of interests work individually and collectively to propel short and long-term goals. Through frequent correspondence with University decision makers, UCS strives to actively and authentically pursue student interests. This year, more than ever before, UCS aspires to develop and foster collaboration between student organizations in order to effectively communicate, represent, and build from the diversity of interests that shape this University.
The General Body meets weekly on Wednesdays at 7:30 PM in Petteruti Lounge, Robert Campus Center – All are welcome!
Any student can join UCS as an At Large Representative at any time! Becoming an At Large Representative grants you full voting privileges, and enables you to run for open officer vacancies.
To become an At Large Representative you must:
