FOr Entering Students
Student Coordinating Committee
The Student Coordinating Committee (SCC) we would like to welcome you into the MSPP community. We eagerly anticipate your arrival and are working hard with the faculty and administration to prepare for your transition into MSPP. With that in mind, we would like to share a little bit about the SCC with you.
The SCC is comprised of two co-chairs, class representatives, and student representatives to various administrative and school committees that work to represent the voice of the entire student body. The Student Coordinating Committee acts as a vital link in the flow of communication between all the various constituencies within the school. Students serving on the SCC are an integral part of the majority of faculty and administrative committees that exist in the school. Students are provided a voice in much of the decision-making that occurs at MSPP and are afforded the opportunity to represent the interest of their peers throughout the MSPP community.
The SCC provides a great opportunity to become acquainted with the MSSP community. Becoming involved helps to maintain the consideration of students’ perspectives and needs as well as assuring a sense of community among the students, faculty, and administration. The SCC is also working to establish more student-led groups and to aid in planning additional educational and social activities. You will hear more about the SCC during orientation week, including information regarding how you can become involved with different projects and committees.
In the meantime, we'd like to introduce you to MyCampus and its various components, which should help to make your transition to MSPP easier. On MyCampus you will find access to library information, department documents (registrar, financial aid etc.), and the SCC homepage. There is also a "Student Marketplace" located on MyCampus, where you can list things you'd like to sell (books, furniture, etc), jobs wanted/available, housing and roommate requests, and much more. It’s like MSPP’s version of “Craigslist.” This is a great way to become familiar with some of the other things that the MSPP community has to offer.
Again, we want to welcome each of you into our community! We look forward to meeting you at orientation. Until then, enjoy the rest of your summer.
