About Columbia College Student Council 23-24

CCSC Mission Statement

CCSC is here to serve the undergraduate population of Columbia College at Columbia University. We organize and fund campus life events, contribute to Columbia University policy changes, help to manage student allocations, and maintain constant and thorough communication with the student body.

The students of Columbia College elect the Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) to serve as their primary representative, advocate, and liaison to the Columbia University community, including its administration, faculty, alumni and students, as well as to the public. The CCSC is charged with gathering and expressing student opinion, actively representing student views, appropriately addressing student concerns, ensuring that college students are fully apprised of all information of impact to their undergraduate experience, responsibly and equitably distributing student activity fees, and working with other student groups to program college-wide events designed to foster cohesiveness within the entire undergraduate population
