Hart House Standing Committee Descriptions
Standing Committees meet approximately every 3 weeks – some in the morning, some in the evening depending on student availability. Through your commitment and input you will learn about committee process, event planning and management, and financial management – at the same time as making your voice heard and your ideas a reality! Hart House has long stood as a place of learning, expression and fun. Be a part of that action!
