Student Congress

Alumni College Center 224
Student Congress is the student government at MVCC.

Student Congress has several purposes:

  • Oversees the expenditure of the Student Activity Fee
  • Acts as a liaison with the College for arranging for students to serve on College committees
  • Provides programs that benefit all students.
  • Any student can participate in Student Congress or may address the members of Congress on matters that are of concern to the student body.
  • To be voting members of the Congress, students must complete a leadership training session administered by Student Activities, and maintain a 2.0 cumulative average.
