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 Macaulay Scholars Council Mission

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.
