E.S. King Village is governed by a Village Council. This council, which holds new elections annually, provides leadership opportunities for all residents of E.S. King Village. The council concerns itself with all issues regarding quality of life, rents and fees, and programs that affect and interest residents. Residents are encouraged to assume a leadership role to strengthen existing skills and develop new ones.

The Village Council, along with the E.S. King Village staff members and partners, proudly maintain a high level of programs and events for all residents of the ES King Village throughout the year.

What is the Village Council?

Village Council is the resident-run governing body for E.S. King Village that works closely with the Residence Director in planning educational and social activities, recommending Village improvements, and functioning as an advisory board on policy issues. Most importantly, the Village Council is a way for residents to meet one another, become actively involved in the community, and develop leadership skills. The Village Council is sponsored by University Housing and funded by E.S. King King Village residential rent and fundraising activities.

The purpose of the Village Council is for residents to raise a concerted voice. The Council supplements Resident Advisor programming efforts by sponsoring building and community activities, including movie nights, guest speakers, children's programs and garden days.
