MISC Working Groups

There are currently four working groups covered under the MISC constitution:

Accessibility Interests
Class of 2020 Continuity
Diversity
Part-time Students

New working groups can be created by a majority vote during a meeting of General Council, at which time a Chair must be appointed. The Working Group may begin operating immediately after this vote is approved. By the following General Council meeting, the Working Group must submit a constitutional amendment including terms of reference for their Group (written in consultation with the MISC executive). Candidates for Vice-President and Representative positions are particularly encouraged to consider chairing a Working Group, since their duties often overlap with the issues addressed by Working Groups.
