Student Representative Council

Administrative Councils Area

SRC represents student concerns by sitting on over 20 different administrative councils. University Leaders attend these councils to discuss and make decisions that affect BYU-Idaho. SRC Council Representatives that sit on each council ask questions and bring a student perspective to ensure all decisions are made in the best interests of the Student Body.

Two council coordinators oversee and provide training to Council Representatives to make sure each council is attended and student concerns are properly represented.


Currently the SRC sits and represents students on the following councils. If you have any input that you feel would benefit students if shared in one of these councils, please let us know by emailing us at
