The Residents’ Council is a coordinating committee consisting of the Chair of the Social Committee, the President of the Green College Dining Society, and one Resident Member from each of the College Standing Committees (Academic, Membership, Media and Communications) chosen by the resident caucuses of those committees. If there is no Postdoctoral Scholar among these ex officio appointees, a postdoctoral resident will be added to the Council, chosen by the Postdoctoral Scholars. The Council may also co-opt up to two members at large, as it sees fit. The Council appoints its own Chair or Co-Chairs. Its role is to assist with communications between the various group-activities of residents and between resident groups and the Green College Office, with respect to any and all matters of actual or potential concern to residents and the Principal. It meets at its own discretion.
