More information about the Faculty Council can be on the Faculty of Information page on Governance, policy, & accountability.
The students elected to the position Faculty Council Representative (there are normally several each year determined by formula and the number of students registered in the MI program) serve to create a student presence at the Faculty Council meetings. They are allowed to speak at meetings (and are encouraged to do so) and are each allotted one vote on the Faculty Council.
These representatives report back to the students and the MISC at the MISC meetings, allowing the greater student body and council members to understand the decision process of the Faculty as well as gather student feedback to be voice at future Faculty Council meetings.
