CAL Student Council

The College of Arts and Letters Student Council (CAL Council) is one of seven College Councils that acts as a liaison between student organizations and SDSU student government (Associated Students). CAL is the largest college council representing over twenty active student groups and clubs on campus.

The Council was designed to help facilitate the role of active clubs on campus and encourage students to take an active role in their academic experience. CAL council serves to provide funding for participating clubs and their members by working together with Associated Students (A.S.). These funds can be used for many diverse purposes. Clubs can engage guest speakers, send representatives to conferences and/or pay registration fees, purchase supplies and banners, or advertise meetings with flyers..

Student representatives of CAL council meet weekly to discuss policies, negotiate decisions, and offer an open space to address the happenings of the College of Arts and Letters. Information is communicated and distributed between A.S., the Council, and the student organizations. The Council offers a brief educational series including topics such as club recruitment, resume building, and career planning. Guest speakers are welcome and included in the planned agenda. The meetings are open to students, faculty, staff, and the public.

The council participates in on- and off-campus SDSU events, along with events sponsored by philanthropic community organizations like the San Diego Food Bank and Coast Keepers. CAL Council offers students the opportunity to develop leadership skills and actively engage as members of the student community. It is a great way to become involved and familiar with the university, the College of Arts & Letters, and student organizations on campus.
