The NJMS Student Council

The NJMS Student Council is the governing body responsible for managing Student Organizations and their funds, setting policies for groups, and representing the student body wherever possible. This broad mandate gives both the power and responsibility to self-govern and improve our school from within. All monthly Council meetings are open to interested students and all voices are welcomed. Below are the documents that comprise the body of law that form , as well as a listing of current representatives, positions, and contact information.
