Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
LASC
Purpose:
Liberal Arts Student Council (LASC) is an academic and professional organization that links Liberal Arts Students to their college. The Council works to convey concerns and special interests from the undergraduate student body to the faculty, staff, and deans of the college. The Council strives to heighten awareness and assist in the development and refinement of professional skills for students pursuing a career by hosting speaker panels that highlight career pathways for liberal arts majors, hosting an etiquette dinner, and hosting an annual career fair specifically for liberal arts majors. Another pillar of the council is to promote Liberal Arts students in both the university and community through various forms such as advertising, a student based publication, community involvement, and community outreach.

Members of the Liberal Arts Student Council meet weekly on Wednesday evenings for a general meeting. Members are expected to attend at least 80% of all meetings, and attend at least three service and three social events per semester. Members are expected to attend select required professional events.
