Get Involved in College Governance
Even by investing only a few hours each month you can get involved in one of the committees that oversees the operation of the College of the Rockies.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, further develop your resume, and earn a few extra dollars to help fund your education.
This year the Students Association is working alongside the College to ensure that student representatives are provided a $25 stipend for each meeting they attend in any of the committees listed below.
Education Council is an internal governance body of COTR as required by the College and Institute Act. EDCO considers curriculum and educational policies relating to students, standards, planning and operations.
In carrying out the business of Education Council, members exercise their best individual judgment in accordance with the College’s Mission, Vision, Values and Strategic Directions. All eligible members vote freely on all issues considered by Education Council regardless of their association with a particular portfolio/area of the institution.
