Rush Medical College Student Council


Rush Medical College recognizes the usefulness of students contributing to discussions on matters affecting the student body and therefore established the Rush Medical College Student Council to facilitate such information exchange. The purpose of the Student Council is to increase communication among the classes and other Rush University organizations, between faculty, staff and administrators of Rush Medical College, and to make recommendations to the Deans concerning programs and policies within Rush Medical College. Student Council also strives to increase the continuity of the medical student’s education at Rush and works with Student Affairs to improve student life. Student Council membership consists of five representatives from each class who are elected by their respective class.
