Hall Council

Overview of Hall Council

One big project we are taking on this year in ResLife is the introduction of a well-rounded self-governance element to the residential experience. Typically these are called "Hall Councils" or "Residence Hall Associations". They meet weekly in the residence. There is a handful of elected positions. They take on two major topics: engagement & advocacy. Engagement is usually seen through programming run by residents in addition to or in tandem with the peer counselor programming. Advocacy is all about hall needs - if they want to fundraise for a new ping pong table or build a coalition to ask environmental services to improve toilet paper quality have been some examples from my past.
