The Committee on Student Life was commissioned in the 1960s by the Board of Trustees of Wake Forest University. It has been operative every year since it was founded. Typically the committee meets twice a month during the academic year.
The Committee on Student Life has a broad charge to consider all matters affecting undergraduate student life at Wake Forest University. In addition, the committee is charged with the following specific responsibilities:
- Conducting lounge reviews and deciding how to allocate student lounge space when it becomes available.
- Assisting in the review process for appointing the student member of the Board of Trustees.
- Serving as the appeals body for sanctions that are leveled against groups in the college.
- Serving as the review body for Campus Life policy changes.
- Assisting in the review process for new student organization charters.
Lounges are open. All lounge activities must be in accordance with the January 2022 Indoor Event Protocols.
If a lounge is available for allocation, the Student Life Committee will instruct The Offices of Student Engagement and Residence Life and Housing to inform all eligible student organizations of the Lounge Allocation Process.
