Join a Committee

HSU has over 40 committees with over 95 student positions.  If you are passionate about a certain issue or interest, there is a committee for it! 

Why join a committee?

Employers are looking for people who are good communicators and collaborators.  Joining a committee can help you improve your communication skills as you advocate for students while you share your opinions and ideas.  Depending on the committee, this is a chance to work with campus professionals on projects that matter and provide positive results for the whole campus.  It’s also a great way to build your resumè as you work with faculty, staff, and administration on campus issues and projects.

Which committee to join?

There is a lot of information available on each committee.  We provide general information for each of the committee, but if you would like to learn more we suggest the committee handbook and visiting their website.
