About student council

As a student at LCC, you automatically become a member of the Student’s General Assembly. The Student Assembly is a democratic, student led and independent organisation here to represent, support and enhance the lives of the students.

Each year students elect Student Council members for one year term that work cooperatively to:   

  • Promote the rights of students and work with on issues that directly affect student educational experience
  • Represent students on President’s cabinet, Academic Council, and the Board of Directors
  • Help students build leadership skills through providing support to student led initiatives, student clubs, and student organisations 
  • Liaise with other student councils in Lithuania as well as Lithuanian Student Union (LSS)
  • Organize events and  programs that enrich students еxperience

Elections

Elections usually happen throughout the month of March, beginning with two weeks of campaigns (candidates make posters, advertise themselves on social media, etc.), and end with debates, followed by two days of voting. The debates are a couple hours long, enough time for each candidate to explain why he/she is the best fit for this position, and an opportunity for them to share some of their goals and visions with students. 

*Information for Elections for the year 2020-2021 will be posted in January.
