The Student Caucus is the primary representative body for students and is part of Warren Wilson's shared governance system. The Caucus meets each week during the school year to discuss student concerns and provide information to students. The Caucus makes policy recommendations in areas affecting student life, including the general philosophy and direction of the College, social regulations, student discipline, student housing, student activities, intercollegiate athletics, the work program, the service program, and the academic calendar.
The College's standing committees include elected student members. Students are either appointed or elected to task forces and search committees. Judicial matters are handled by an elected group of students, staff, and faculty.
