As an essential part of a student's college experience, involvement with on-campus student organizations has been acknowledged as one of the leading factors of success. The Engineering Governing Council (EGC), the governing body established to act as the liason between faculty, administration, alumni, and the students distributes funds to engineering societies and organizations. Consequently, the EGC serves as the official spokesperson of all Engineering students as it provides a unified voice within the engineering and university-wide community. Students have the opportunity to participate in various student organizations as a result of the numerous options available to them, and could potentially have the opportunity to represent the Council itself.
The work of EGC has contributed to the growth of the engineering community by addressing needs that are of immediate concern to the respective student organizations. For example, EGC in the past has pushed to receive preferential house on Busch campus for engineers, campaigned to receive more of their student fee money back in the form of Engineering Society funding, and established quiet study rooms in ARC for engineers to use after 10:00 PM. Additionally, the EGC works in parallel with University administration and other student governing associations to help give students at Rutgers University a stronger voice as a whole.
