Serving as a Student Senator is an excellent learning and leadership opportunity, and a chance to have a real voice in the NEC Community. Senators represent the student body by serving on one of four committees: Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, Graduate Curriculum Committee, Student Affairs Committee and Disciplinary Committee. Those who are interested in becoming a Student Senator apply to do so via an application process each spring semester through the Office of Student Services.
The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee
The UCC meets the third Wednesday of each month to discuss new course proposals and potential changes to the undergraduate curriculum.
The Graduate Curriculum Committee
The GCC meets the third Wednesday of each month to discuss new course proposals and potential changes to the undergraduate curriculum.
The Student Affairs Committee
The Student Affairs Committee is comprised of NEC administrators, members of the Board of Trustees and Overseers, and select student senators meets twice during each semester to address student concerns and showcase new initiatives.
The Disciplinary Committee
The Disciplinary Committee meets on an as-needed basis to determine if a violation of NEC disciplinary code has occurred, and if so, how to resolve the matter.
