Student-Staff Consultative Committees (SSCC)

The SSCC is a forum for discussion between staff and student academic representatives. It’s a great chance to work together to improve students’ learning experience, and a big part of how we make education better at UCL. At the Institute of the Americas, the SSCC is chaired by Dr Josh Hollands. Our SSCC representatives for 2023/24 are yet to be elected.
