Being a Macaulay Scholars Council (MSC) representative makes a difference! More than just a student government body, the Scholars Council is an important and influential voice of the Macaulay student body at CUNY. The Council’s mission is to promote an informed and involved student body, build cross-campus relationships through sponsorship of various activities, and provide input to the Macaulay administration. The MSC and its members develop and support some of Macaulay’s traditional community events, such as the Spring Formal, Halloween Party, and Freshmen Class Mixer. You can view the full duties of the council and Macaulay Scholars Council Charter here.

Representatives are needed for all four classes, at all eight campuses. The elections for Classes of 2022, 2023, and 2024 already took place – see here for those results.

Want to become a Class of 2025 MSC member for 2021-2022? Here’s how:

STEP 1:
Submit a statement of interest between Tuesday, August 17th and Tuesday, September 7th.  All candidates, new and incumbent, must send a statement. Your statement will be shared with all student voters, so include details that highlight your leadership skills and the theme of your candidacy. Here’s a sample.

STEP 2:
Candidate statements will appear on this site as candidates submit them. Students can use the campus and class menu drop-downs to view. Your fellow students will use the statements to decide how to vote. You may view the Candidate Advertising and Campaign Guidelines here to see what you can do to share your candidacy and encourage fellow students to vote.

STEP 3:
Voting will take place from Thursday, September 9th – Thursday, September 16th. During this election period all students will be invited via email to cast their votes online for a candidate in the same campus and class.

STEP 4:
On Friday, September 17th, the winners are announced!

STEP 5:
Meet your fellow Macaulay Scholars Council representatives at the mandatory meeting on Sunday, September 19th at 11:00am. All elected representatives are also required to attend a leadership retreat in the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester.
