Joint Consultative Committee
The Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) meets once a term, and consists of student representatives form each of the graduate degrees offered by ISCA and volunteer members from the staff body. It provides a forum for discussion and negotiation between the students and staff concerning a range of matters that arise throughout the year. Points for the agenda are suggested by students and staff, but the JCC is always chaired by a student. Recent issues that have been raised include student involvement with the Department Seminar, the structure of various lectures, the provision of common room amenities including a microwave and lockers, the re-writing of the Department Handbook, and the fostering of links between the various degrees. The JCC is closely linked to the Anthropology Society, and it is hoped that through these forums, any issue may be appropriatly considered.
