The Diplomatic Congress of Franklin & Marshall College was formed in order to create a more united student voice, strengthen communication and cohesion among various student organizations, and advocate on behalf of the entire student body.
The General Assembly of the Diplomatic Congress is made up of the First-Year, Sophomore, Junior and Senior Classes; Bonchek, Brooks, the New College House, Weis and Ware College Houses; the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, Inter-Fraternity Council and Pan-Hellenic Council; and our Committees of the Diplomatic Congress which include Blue & White Society, the College Entertainment Committee and Club Council. The Food Committee, The Quality of Student Life Committee, the Public Safety Taskforce, and the Public Relations Committee are also part of the General Assembly. All of these groups are overseen by the four executive officers, which include the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.
The purpose of this congress is to unite student organizations under one body to create a powerful student body voice. This should bring all members of the Franklin & Marshall College community to incorporate the interests of all students in an open environment. The goal of this body is to encourage communication and cohesion among subsidiaries while respecting their individuality and autonomy. This overaching organization is meant to serve as an advocacy body as well as a means to facilitate programming among pre-established organizations.
