The College Council is the highest legislative body in the College. It is composed of nineteen members representing the Master, the Fellows, and the students. The nature of the representation is prescribed in some cases including the Master and three fellows. The officers are a President, Vice President, and Treasurer, male and female Social and Cultural Affairs Directors, male and female Athletic Affairs Directors, and student representatives for commuting students, for first-year students, and for residence students. There are also two Councillors-at-Large. Two of the student representatives must sit on the York Federation of Students. The Council has several committees and commissions, including the Judicial Affairs Commission, which is responsible for discipline of all members of Winters College. The Council has responsibility for the supervision of all clubs in the College, the allocation of the Council funds collected from students, the regulation of student behaviour and other responsibilities as assigned by the Master. The Council, through a Board of Management, operates the Absinthe Pub, and has also supported several literary and newsletter publications.
