AT HAMLINE,

we take the lead

Our mission is to broaden the representative character of the student body, to foster high ideals of conduct, to foster traditions, and to promote unity and cooperation among the students

what is husc?

The Hamline Undergraduate Student Congress (HUSC) is the student led legislative advocacy group at Hamline. We work with members of our Hamline community as well as community organizations and leaders in the Twin Cities. HUSC represents the voices and needs of the students and works on supporting individuals, organizations, and the campus as a whole.

The HUSC Council is made up of the Executive Board and both elected and appointed representatives who serve on four different committees. HUSC exists through the Board of Trustees but is an independent organization that first and foremost promotes the needs of the undergraduate student body. The Executive Board consists of officers and chairs appointed by the President and Vice President elect. The only exception is the Board of Elected Representatives Chair who is elected by the HUSC student representatives. 

Capital improvement resolutions and other proposals are debated and approved during the General Assembly which takes place every Tuesday from 11:30-12:30. These resolutions vary from physical improvements to campus (renovating the Commuter Lounge for instance) to calling for reductions in the yearly tuition. All undergraduate students are apart of HUSC and can vote on many of our resolutions.

why join husc?

From office pranks and barbecues with the board, to building friendships, opportunities, and change, there are a million reasons to join HUSC, but heres just four!

community

HUSC isn't just a student government, it's a community of passionately engaged individuals  who aim to make our campus a better place. Resolutions and statements aside, we also know how to have fun ;) If you've never played Hogwarts at midnight and avada kedavra'd the student president while sipping hot cocoa, are you really in student gov? 

opportunity

As student leaders, we have a unique opportunity to lend our voices and make change for our peers and community. Through service and practice, we act as the voice for students to administration and work on implementing student oriented policies that reflect our needs.

diversity

At HUSC we believe that our policies and practices should reflect and take into account the diverse bodies of our community.  We understand and value the intersectionality of our campus and work to bring more equitable solutions to the administration.

leadership

We take our motto seriously and work year round to find solutions to our community's biggest and smallest challenges. From creating better student spaces, divesting from predatory contacts, to fighting for non-gendered bathrooms and equitable health policies, we put our words into practice.

HUSC is one of the easiest ways to connect with others on campus and build life-long relationships
