Fellows' Council

Fellows' Council is a fellow-led committee that meets to form new initiatives, social opportunities and projects that support all fellows.  Council members act as a liaison to the fellowship leadership and have the opportunity to work on projects aimed at improving the fellowship experience and well-being for their community.

Members are elected from each program around May and serve an academic year term. Specific lead roles may arise during the year such as organizing fitness challenges, planning social outings, and organizing inter-disciplinary QI projects.

Council Activities

Big/Lil' Sib Program 

The Big/Lil' Sib Program matches incoming first-year fellows with second or third-year fellows from outside of their divisions. Incoming fellows have an opportunity to connect with their Big Sib before they arrive to campus, and during orientation we have scheduled time for Big and Lil' sibs to meet during lunch. Our hope is that this connection helps foster a broader sense of community among fellows and provides an opportunity to expand both professional and social networks.

Social Events

The Council has discretionary funds to plan activities for the fellow community. In the past, they have organized yoga sessions,  hikes, quiz nights, and happy hours. Contact your division representative with activities you'd like to see.

Fellows' Council Meetings
