GC Student Committee

The Global Citizenship Student Committee (GCSC) is the student governance body of the program. Serving members get elected at the end of each Fall semester, and they serve for 2 consecutive semesters. Their tasks include: preserving the spirit and the heritage of the program by running cohort-bonding activities and simulations; spreading global awareness and disseminating the special "global citizenship" ethos on and off campus; advising the program director about student life and program well-being; playing a key role in the recruitment of new students. Some of the events organized or supervised yearly by the GCSC include the GCfreshman orientation, the GC photo exhibit, and the International Bazaar.
