Hall/Community Council

The FIU Hall/Community Councils consist of student leaders who represent the interests of the students in their respective residential area. These students serve as liaisons between their residential communities and the Residence Hall Association. They help voice concerns and put together programs for their residential area. The members of the Councils strive to put on a variety of programs that represent the interests of their community, to enhance community engagement by promoting programs hosted by other halls or RHA, and to be an active member of the FIU community by participating in initiatives across the campus.
