General Assembly

What are General Assemblies?

The General Assembly is the official voice of IRC.

Its goal is to address residential concerns to ensure that NC State residents are heard and to provide a clear voice to University Housing about student’s opinions on housing. The General Assembly is formed by representatives from each residential community that are voted into the position by their peers.

General Assembly meetings have agendas to handle IRC business and they typically include the following:

  • A third-party speaker from an NC State organization (Counseling Center, Wellness & Recreation, etc.). The speaker usually gives a presentation on what their organization does and after giving the presentation the assembly has the opportunity to ask questions and/or propose ideas to advocate for residents.
  • Committee Breakouts, which let General Assembly committees meet to discuss and conduct business.
  • Announcements from the Executive Board of IRC
  • An Open Floor for residents and representatives to propose new business and/or legislation.

General Assembly is open to the public and residents are highly encouraged to attend to learn more about what may be impacting their experience.
