About the Ivy Council

The Premiere Student Organization in the Ivy League

Founded in 1993 by student government leaders from Ivy League universities, The Ivy Council serves as a channel for students to collaborate and exchange ideas on common issues at their respective schools.

In 1997, the Ivy Council re-defined its organizational structure to include a broader membership beyond student governments, to represent a greater diversity of students. The first Ivy Leadership Summit was held in 2000 and has since then continued to bring together student leaders for discussions on pressing campus and Ivy-wide issues. As the Ivy Council continued to grow, its activities expanded to include the annual Ivy Policy Conference, IvyCORPS, State of the Ivy, Ivy International exchanges, and other programs.

Today, the Ivy Council continues to serve as a platform for student leaders to represent the voices of students within the Ivy League and create positive change.
