The Council of Student Leaders: A Retrospective Analysis
Mazurek, Jordan Edward
The Council of Student Leaders is an organization developed by a collective of students with an overarching goal of bridging the gap that exists amongst various segments of the student body in order to foster community. Built out of multiple theoretical frameworks centered around the shared concept of decentralized leadership this model was developed with particular consideration of the local context of power, privilege, hierarchical leadership structures, division, and social atomization that exist at Texas Christian University. Originating in a simple conversation amongst friends the Council blossomed into a truly collaborative effort as multiple individuals came together to create something much greater than the sum of its parts. Explored in these pages is my own involvement in all of this as well as a challenge for you, the reader, to take what is in these pages and build something of your own from it.
