Get Involved with SRC
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a part of the Student Support organization. There are many ways you can get involved with SRC. Whether you have five spare minutes each week or are looking for serious responsibility and leadership opportunities, the SRC has a place for you. Service in the SRC gives you a chance to speak your mind on important issues affecting students and to work with the leadership of the university to improve the student experience.
Student Voice Member
Time Commitment: 5-10 minutes/week
As a Student Voice Member you can share your opinions about a wide array of issues at BYU-Idaho. Each week you will receive a brief survey on topics that are being considered by the university administration. Campus leaders are interested in hearing your input to make decisions that are in the best interest of the students. Your participation will help the SRC more effectively represent the voice of students to the administrators at BYU-Idaho.
Student Voice Volunteer
Time Commitment: 2 hours/week
In addition to taking the Student Voice Surveys, Student Voice Volunteers attend weekly volunteer groups to help review and sort survey results and discuss student issues. These volunteers provide the SRC with an instant focus group so we can get instant feedback from students on any issues that come up during the week. During these sessions administrators are invited to answer questions about their deparments. Additionally, many of the surveys contain open-ended questions where the respondent can type out an answer. Student Voice Volunteers help sort through, summarize, and categorize those responses as well as analyze and propose solutions that are reported back to the administration and the students.
