Council of Student Leaders

Message from the President

 Greetings,

Welcome to the Council of Student Leaders Website! CSL is unique to Winthrop and serves as our Student Government and is comprised of representatives from various campus organizations, university colleges and annual member seats reserved for any student. This combination of student leaders provides a diverse blend of people and ideas as well as brings together the best of the best to accomplish task for the student body.

CSL serves as the official voice of Winthrop’s students and seeks to serve the student body. I encourage you whether you have an idea or an issue big or small to attend a CSL meeting or visit our office. Too often students don’t realize the amount of power that they have to affect change and bring about real reform.   During our Annual Fall Retreat in September 2012, Council members developed our vision statement for the 2012-2013 academic year. 

Vision Statement

“During the 2012-2013 academic year Winthrop University Council of Student Leaders (CSL) will serve as a strong liaison between students, faculty, and staff, which will encourage exemplary campus wide student services.  We will promote citizenship and seek to empower students to be responsible for their own future by creating awareness campaigns addressing campus safety, environmental responsibility, and intimate partner violence and encouraging students to vote in national, state, and campus-wide elections.  Additionally, we will enhance student morale and spirit by offering diverse student involvement activities especially targeted for the weekends, as well as increased student involvement and loyalty to WU.  All of these initiatives will increase awareness about CSL within the campus community so that students will know that they have strong student representation.”

Although the functions of each university's student government is different, here at Winthrop, the Council of Student Leaders is responsible for such activities as allocating money to clubs and organizations, serving as the voice of the student body to the administration, and adding a student perspective to the implementation of Winthrop's Vision of Distinction. Through our committee work we strive to build ties in the community and address student needs.

As you look through our website you will see some of our past projects and also a list of representatives with their e-mail addresses. I challenge you to get in touch with a representative if you have a question, a comment, concerns, or even an idea to improve our University and make it the best place to be. We look forward to seeing you Monday evening at 7:00PM in DIGS 114. Dr. King once said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”


Sincerely, 

Christopher J. Aubrie
