The Executive Committee aims to improve communication and relations between the College administration and each of the four ASOC branches, ensuring more horizontal and shared governance and giving each branch an equal voice in the decision-making process of student body affairs.
The vision behind the creation of the Executive Committee is to ensure the active participation of all students, especially for those from marginalized and historically underrepresented backgrounds who are often excluded from traditional power structures.
