Governance Opportunities

Residents play an extraordinary role in the College’s governance, holding 11 of 32 positions on the Council and 3 of 10 positions on the Board of Management, with full voting rights.

This not only gives them a powerful role in making important decisions that affect them and their fellow residents but provides amazing opportunities in governance training for a future generation of leaders.

The residents who grasp these opportunities really rise to the challenge and show extraordinary personal development in their leadership skills within a short space of time.
