Welcome to Douglass Governing Council!


The Douglass Governing Council serves the student body of Douglass Residential College.

By providing campus wide advocacy on behalf of Douglass Residential College student concerns, securing for students an active role in deciding official policies and priorities on the Douglass Residential College campus as well as the larger Rutgers community, effectively co-sponsoring and reimbursing student activity fees, and providing a forum for the open expression of student ideas and opinions, DGC is here for you.


“Here was a place where nothing was crystallized. There were no traditions, no customs, no college songs …. There were no rules and regulations. All would have to be thought of, planned, built up, created—what a magnificent opportunity!”

Mabel Smith Douglass
