Student GovernmentThe MIT Dormitory Council
The MIT Dormitory Council is the governing body of all MIT undergraduate dormitories. DormCon holds meetings about once every two weeks, although the officers regularly meet more often. Since all dorm residents are members of DormCon, anyone can come to meetings. The voting members are all house presidents, elected at the dormitory level, making DormCon one of the most representative governmental organizations on campus.
Currently, DormCon’s main function is to act as a student advocacy group. The group represents the interests of all dorm residents to members and departments of the MIT administration and wants their constituents’ voices to be heard. DormCon’s input has been considered in the design of MIT’s new judicial/grievance system, the MIT alcohol policy, housing planning, food services, dean searches, curfew policy, and, recently, the “reengineering” of student services. This year DormCon will be focusing much of their discussion on the proposed changes to the Residence Selection process, but we will also be involved on many levels with important issues on campus.
All students who live in a dorm are members, to get involved is attend a meeting and ask to help.
