Executive Student Council

Elected by their peers, these student leaders represent the core interprofessional values of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) at the highest level. As the voice of the students of RFUMS, the Student Council exists to advocate for the needs of our students, promote unity between the six colleges of RFUMS, and serve as a means to organize and run student events.

The purpose of the Executive Student Council is to:

  • Represent the student body, independently, in its interactions with the University as a whole, forming official opinions on behalf of students in response to administrative policies.
  • Foster an environment of academic excellence by providing a forum for all students to propose changes that will maximize the educational experience.
  • Unite and promote an alliance of student health professionals and provide a means for organizing special interest groups and organizations.
  • Maintain RFUMS as a key contributor to the education of health care professionals and the surrounding community through the promotion of student events and activities.
  • Sponsor and encourage educational, service, and social events by means of an established budget, emphasizing interactions among students, faculty, administration, and the community.
