What is the Student InterCouncil?
The Student InterCouncil (SIC) is the UTHealth student governance organization and is the recognized forum of student opinion and the primary vehicle for student participation in the governance of UTHealth. The organization is comprised of representatives from each of the six schools and from underrepresented student and international student constituencies.
The SIC contributes to the quality of student life at UTHealth by participating in the development and implementation of policies and procedures affecting students; providing funds to support special projects of other student organizations; representing student interests on external and internal committees; improving communication among the schools through the publication of an SIC newsletter, UTHealth Student Pulse; and planning and implementing activities that address the special needs of students.
The SIC is facilitated by Dr. George M. Stancel, Executive Vice President for Academic and Research Affairs (EVPARA), and Budget Liaison, Mr. Charles Figari, Vice President and Chief Auxiliary Enterprise Officer. A faculty advisor appointed by the Interfaculty Council also sits on the SIC. The Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic and Research Affairs in conjunction with the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises supports the endeavors of the SIC through administrative advisors, Ms. Kathy Rodgers, Assistant Director for Academic Affairs, Office of the EVPARA, and Mrs. Ronda Mullane, Assistant to the Vice President of Auxiliary.
