There are currently 33 committees at Haverford with student representatives serving on them. The committees range in purpose from environmental policy, to decisions on the College’s budget, to running the Customs Program for freshmen. The representatives are appointed by Appointments Committee, comprised of the SC Vice Presidents (Chairs of Appointments Committee), all five Officers on SC, and the four class representatives (see below for a list of the Fall 2015 members of Appointments Committee). As a body of representatives elected by the general study body, Appointments Committee strives to choose committee representatives without bias or agenda in an effort to best serve the students. Applications for open positions are sent out on a weekly basis and the schedule for this semester will be available soon.
