Each year, MSTP students elect a member from each class to serve on the MSTP Student Council. The Student Council has various responsibilities including organizing the fall and spring retreats, assisting with admissions processes like interviews and recruitment, organizing social events, and providing student representation at the Steering Committee and Admissions Committee. Additionally, Student Council representatives serve as an active voice for each class and represent the program as a whole.
