Responsibilities of the Academic Standards Committee Student Members
The primary responsibility of the student members of the Academic Standards Committees is to serve as a liaison between the Medical Student Council and their Academic Standards Committee. Therefore, attendance of every representative at each Medical Student Council meeting and Academic Standards Committee meeting is a necessity in order to properly fulfill the position.
The Academic Standards Committee representatives are responsible for reporting to the MSC regarding the progress of the committee. In the event that the committee does not meet as scheduled (once per month), the representatives are still responsible for contacting and meeting with the committee chair to obtain an update before the next MSC meeting.
Each Academic Standards Committee representative has full voting privileges as a member of their assigned committee and is regarded by the faculty and administration as an equal contributor to the proper functioning of the committee. Therefore, the most highly recommended candidates for the Academic Standards Committees will also be the most proactive students.
Before accepting their position, all Academic Standards Committee candidates must agree to attend the annual MSC Leadership Day in August as well as serve as a member of the interview committee on the subsequent Interview Day during the following year. Both of these events will take place on a Saturday.
