College committee opportunities
College-wide committees seek student representation at the beginning of each school year. Students who have had this unique opportunity recommend the experience as an impactful way to contribute and to develop professional skills with as little a time commitment as 1-3 hours a month. Student members have had opportunities to work closely with engineering faculty and staff, understand the inner workings of the College, and implement changes and improvements that directly impacted their peers.
Applications for 2022-23 will be available late spring.
- To be eligible to serve on a college committee, you must be enrolled as a full-time student at Cal for both the fall and spring semester of the year for which you are applying.
- All committee appointments will be for one academic year only. Any students serving as committee representatives during the current academic year must reapply in order to be considered for the coming academic year.
Below are the committees that need student members and their functions:
- Engineering Library Committee – 2 undergraduate students, 2 graduate students: This committee gathers feedback from fellow students to provide to the Director of the Engineering Library, provides their own feedback and suggestions and advises the Director of the Library on student opinion related to library policies, spaces, collections, websites, and digital services.
- Graduate Study Committee – 2 graduate students: This committee shall review proposed graduate curriculum and curricular changes, review graduate engineering course and modifications in existing courses, and advise the Dean on graduate programs.
