Every HSSP student participates in a Student Programming Committee as part of their HSSP experience. This gives students the opportunity to create programs and activities for their community that are fun and interesting to them. It also gives students experience in planning events, working as a team to accomplish goals, and a great way to make friends throughout the HSSP community! Each committee is advised by a Resident Advisor and supported by Peer Mentors to help students answer questions and utilize resources along the way.
There are six different committees that students will be placed in by ordered preference:
Social Identity and Awareness
Health and Wellness
Leadership and Development
Alumni and Student Outreach
Events Planning Council
The Events Planning Council (EPC) is an elected board and student representatives similar to a hall or student council. Students are elected to be in this committee, in addition to being in their normal committee (one of the six listed above). This group is given a budget each year to help fund HSSP community events and programs. EPC receives program proposals and reviews them for opportunities to fund and promote the events. Being a part of the EPC is a great way to gain more leadership experiences and a another way HSSPers can create the type of community they would like to be a part of.
HSSP's live-in student leaders provides support and mentorship for all HSSP residents, lead and/or coordinate program events, and help make HSSP a fun and supportive environment for students to live and learn.
