Improving the College of Nursing Student Experience
The College of Nursing (CON) College Student Council (CSC) is both an academic and social organization run by matriculated students to establish and promote communication and interaction among students, faculty, staff, and administrators. CON CSC is an opportunity to work closely with peers, gain leadership skills, and provide opportunities for CON students.
What is College Student Council?
CON CSC's main purpose is to provide students with social and academic opportunities while encouraging involvement with the CON, the CON Alumni Board, National Student Nurses Association (NSNA), Utah Student Nursing Association (USNA), and CON Student Services. We are an academic and social organization run by current nursing students who serve and support our communities, make everlasting memories and friends, find ways to connect with faculty, and grow professionally. CSC allows students to have the opportunity attend NSNA conferences, explore different nursing specialties, and collaborate with nurses throughout the interdisciplinary profession.
Mission & Vision
College Student Council's mission is striving to support and promote the nursing profession by providing resources and services to nursing students. By hosting events and programs, as well as advocating for all students in the College of Nursing we hope to enhance their educational experience and the lives of those they will serve.
College Student Council's vision is to empower, support, and educate the future nurses of tomorrow by elevating the nursing profession through contributing our voices in advocacy, and furthering our professional presence, support all nurses through our committees and board to ensure success upon graduation, and provide leadership opportunities to increase experience, and expose our nurses to many different situations.
CSC has an Executive Board made up of several members: 2 Co-Presidents, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, ASUU Representative, Historian, and Cohort Representatives. NEAP and other Pre-Nursing students also have a representative who attends CSC meetings to invite their peers to CSC events. CSC has several committees. Each committee has 1-2 Committee Chairs. These people work closely with the Executive Board in planning events. Every committee plans and organizes at least 2 events per semester. Students in the CON can join any of the 8 committees: Mentoring, Community Service, Education, Fundraising, Outreach and Inclusion, Social/Events, Wellness, and Professionalism.
