Tufts Community Union Class Councils,
The Tufts Community Union Class Councils are a part of the undergraduate student government. Each year, there are four class councils, one for each class year.
Each Tufts Community Union Class Council is considered a standing committee of the Programming Board. As of spring 2000, their appointed members are charged with promoting class spirit, coordinating events for their respective classes and establishing a fund for a contribution to be presented to the university by the class upon graduation. The councils have no legislative or judicial authority, and work with the Office of Student Activities, Office of Alumni Relations, Career Services and the Development Office in their respective goals. Each class has a council with five officers - Chairperson, Events Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary, and Publicity Chair - and any other members of their class who wish to participate in the council. Officers are elected through a popular election within each council.
