Student opinions and views play a significant role in institutional decisions affecting their interests and welfare. Students are asked to complete the following: a comprehensive student opinion survey, course assessments and the advising assessment. Students serve on key academic committees such as the Commencement Committee, the Core Curriculum Committee, and as advisors to the Board of Trustees committees.
Particularly important is the role of elected student government representatives in this process. The president along with selected other officers of the student government association meet regularly with the vice president for student affairs to discuss student body concerns.
