Brainerd Commons Council

The mission of Brainerd's Commons Council is to provide events for Brainerd students.  The council serves as a self-governing body for students, and it supports individual students initiatives by allocating portions of the student activities fee to causes that have passed a majority vote by council members.  All students in Brainerd are a part of the council, and all are able to come to the meetings to vote.

Brainerd council meetings are held every week - Fall meeting times will be announced in the kNOwBRAINERd Newsletter.

To submit a proposal to Brainerd Commons Council or request funding for an event, please fill out the Funding form and email it to Brainerd Council at brainerdcc@middlebury.edu.

The Council Chairs

Commons chairs run commons council meetings, plan commons events, and work closely with the residential life staff to create a vibrant community.  Collectively, the chairs of the five commons make up the InterCommons Council (ICC) which allows for activity planning to occur between the commons.  Chairs can support individual student initiatives, so contact them if you have a great idea that you'd like to see happen.
