While it’s true that Fletcher’s Student Council couldn’t make a decision to, say, offer all students an A grade in every class, it does play an important role in representing students — their views and needs — to the School’s administration. The Council is composed of first-year and continuing students, and there’s a rep for the PhD program.
Based on reports I’ve seen, the past few years’ Councils have been particularly active, and even hold office hours so that students can express their opinions. True representative democracy!
But what would be the purpose of working hard on behalf of one’s constituents, if those good citizens of Fletcher never learned the results of the Council’s actions. Creating awareness fell to Councillor Blake and friend, Lesley. They channeled 2012′s big Oscar winner in this video report about the Council’s success in arranging after-hours availability of food and supplies — for students who can’t bear to leave the building.
