Village Council

Village Council is a volunteer organization that falls under the Residence Halls Association (RHA). Village Council is an essential organization in housing that assists with connecting with residents and giving them a place to call home. The mission of Village Council is to help enhance the residential experience through programming, building a strong community, and assembling a connection with residents and housing student leaders.
