Unique to Concordia is the extent that students are involved in college committees, serving in advisory roles and as full-voting members. The following committees function to serve the interests of students and all have administrative, faculty and student representation. In addition to these committees, students are asked to serve on many ad hoc committees, subcommittees, task forces, search committees and faculty evaluation teams so that they may make significant contributions to the workings of Concordia College. If you have any questions regarding any college committee, contact Student Government Association or the Office of Student Affairs.
