Welcome to the Michigan Student Caucus
The Michigan Student Caucus represents the interests of students of all ages across the State of Michigan. Using this website and often drawing on a variety of off-line experiences, members identify issues, brainstorm solutions, create legislative proposals, and rate each others' proposals. The highest rated proposals become part of the MSC platform, which is presented two times a year (in December and April) as a formal before the Michigan House of Representatives Special Commission on Civic Engagement. Hearings take place in the Capitol Building in Lansing.
If you are a student in an course related to the MSC, you may join this site by following the "sign up" link above. (Administrative approval is required before you can log in.) If you are an individual wishing to participate or observe, or if you are interested in bringing a group into the MSC, don't hesitate to contact us.
Fall 2015 MSC Platform
Here are slides accompanying the December 8, 2015 presentation of the MSC platform to the Michigan House Special Commission on Civic Engagement, in Lansing, Michigan.
The slides contain summaries of the eight legislative proposals chosen by the Caucus from over 100 proposals crafted by MSC members, as representing the interests of students in Michigan. Proposals in the platform were chosen as the result of several weeks of commenting, discussion, and rating by members of the Caucus.
