our structure

Whether its tackling food insecurity or accessibility, the Hamline Undergraduate Student Congress (HUSC) is ready for it all. Our organization is built and led by students from all backgrounds who seek to make our community a better place

How does HUSC WORK?

The HUSC Council is made up of the Executive Board and both elected and appointed representatives. 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.

Made up of four different legislative committees; Economic Affairs, Political Affairs, Public Relations, and Student Organizations, each committee works to address campus related issues in addition to their specific duties. The Board of Elected Representatives serves as a joint-council of all elected representatives. Through HUSC, student budgets and grants are funded. In addition to other events, HUSC also charters organizations and provides support in a variety of ways. 

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.
