The Student-Staff Consultative Committee is a platform for discussion between students and members of staff about any relevant departmental issue, from teaching to extra-departmental activities, which affects more than a single person. Students who wish to organise an activity, make a complaint, suggest an improvement of one thing or another, will find a willing ear here. In this representative body each year is represented.
At least one meeting each term will be organised, but at request of the students or staff, additional meetings may be convened. The current minutes will be posted at the boards of HJS; from 2008 on, we will resume posting the minutes on this webpage. After three years, these minutes will be archived.
Committee members for each academic year will be elected at the beginning of the first term.
