Off-Campus Council Elections

Each Spring, Judicial Council holds elections to select Off-Campus Council.  Spring 2021 Elections information will be available closer to election season.  Below is the timeline for the 2020 Off-Campus Council elections, which were held in fall rather than spring due to COVID-19.
