Judy Genshaft Honors College Student Council

Honors College Student Council members 2018

The Judy Genshaft Honors College Student Council (JGHCSC) serves as a way for students to develop leadership/professional development skills, contribute to the local Tampa Bay community, and network with honors faculty, staff, and students.

The mission of the Judy Genshaft Honors College Student Council is to develop a community of leaders by providing opportunities for leadership/professional development, social connectivity, and service in order to achieve a balanced honors experience. Students who are part of this organization will utilize digital technology to market and promote honors events, plan and facilitate JGHCSC events, and work with local community partners to create service opportunities for honors students.

We have three committees for students to join: events, volunteer, and marketing & public relations (MPR). Each committee is led by two co-chairs. In addition, we have a president, vice president, leadership and professional development chair, and an educational community liaison.

Volunteer Committee:

  • Works with local community partners to plan service opportunities for honors students including working with children, animals, the elderly, local schools, and much more!
  • Students in this committee can expect to plan service opportunities for the College, fundraise for a local agency, reflect on service opportunities, and learn about social issues within the Tampa Bay community.
  • Meets Tuesdays from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the honors student lounge.

Events Committee:

  • Plans and facilitates all JGHCSC-hosted events, including Fall Picnic, Honors Got Talent, Honors After Hours, and much more!
  • Students in this committee can expect to plan event details, facilitate JGHCSC-related events, and network with honors faculty/staff and students.
  • Meets Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the honors student lounge.

Marketing & Public Relations (MPR) Committee:

  • Develops clever and unique marketing campaigns for JGHCSC events. Students do not have to be a marketing/advertising major to join! No experience necessary.
  • Students in this committee can expect to develop marketing campaigns for JGHCSC events utilizing digital technology (Instagram, Photoshop, Canva, etc.). In addition, students will have the opportunity to create video projects that may be showcased on the Judy Genshaft Honors College YouTube Channel.
  • Meets Thursdays from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the honors student lounge.
