Yale College Council
The Yale College Council (YCC) was created to ensure that undergraduate students have a legitimate voice in Yale’s governance. YCC provides students with an opportunity to influence both their academic and social experience. YCC is comprised of a six member student-wide elected executive board who meets weekly with the Yale College Dean’s Office and the President’s Office, a twenty-four member elected council (with two representatives from each residential college), and non-elected associate and professional members.
Graduate & Professional School Senate
The mission of the graduate student senate is to foster interaction among students through community service, social gatherings, academic and professional events, as well as to enable official and unofficial student groups. The Senate also represents the graduate and professional student population on official university committees and oversees the management and maintenance of GPSCY and Gryphon's Pub.
Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences Senate is a 22 member elected Senate which represents faculty from all ranks and divisions within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Yale. 2015-2016 marks the Senate’s inaugural year as the chief representative and voice for the Yale FAS.
The Provost's Office also convenes a number of committees with faculty and staff representation (by appointment) to address pressing university needs.
Within the City of New Haven, Community Management Teams (CMT) are organized in each of New Haven's ten community policing districts. A CMT consists of residents and businesses within the district who have organized to serve as a forum for problem solving and information exchange centering around neighborhood issues that are of the most concern to the group. Community Management Teams help residents have a voice in neighborhood improvement and revitalization efforts and are an important link to the police and to other city and social service agencies. The University regularly attends and participates at these meetings in adjacent neighborhoods and keeps the community informed about new projects and developments.
