Each campus is responsible for electing one nominee from their campus before the UMSC meeting. During this meeting, UMSC will evaluate each of the four candidate’s application and we will all vote on one candidate to be the UIC-COM candidate for H.I.M. Your OSR reps will then prepare the application for this candidate and submit it to the national board.
