The WHC organizes a number of educational, spiritual, and service-oriented projects throughout the academic year. The Wednesday Lunch Fast is the group's main project. Those who wish to participate volunteer to skip lunch each Wednesday of the semester and the dining hall donates a designated amount for each meal skipped. That money is then sent to several Third World grassroots developmental projects in an effort to alleviate the suffering of hunger. Sign-ups take place at the beginning of each semester and only those students with meal plans may participate.
In addition, the group sponsors a Thanksgiving and Easter Basket Drive each year. Donations are taken up around campus and used to purchase Thanksgiving/Easter dinners for the less fortunate in the local community.

Student Government

In order to achieve the greatest possible contribution to our community, we endeavor to make efficient and effective use of the resources available, to communicate student convictions clearly and willfully to faculty, administrators, and trustees, and to achieve consensus within the University community on formulation and execution of policy.
--from Preamble to the Student Union Constitution

The student union is the composition of the representative body for undergraduate students at the University of Notre Dame. The following is a brief description of each of the organizations which comprise the student union.

There are two branches within the Student Union: the Policy Branch and the Programming Branch.

The Executive Cabinet governs the actions of the Student Senate.
Its membership is as follows:

The organizations of the Programming Branch share program events designed to meet the programming needs and wants of their organizations and/or the constituents they represent. The Executive Programming Board serves as the organization to coordinate these activities. Its membership is as follows:

Student Body President and Vice-President. Presiding over the student union are the student body president and vice-president, who are elected on one ticket every February to one-year terms starting April 1. As the chief executives of the student union their primary role is to ensure the efficient operation of all student entities and organizations/clubs.

Student Union Senate.Chaired by the student body vice-president, the student union senate is composed of one elected member from each undergraduate residence hall and one off-campus senator. The senate serves as the primary policy body of the student union, advancing the position of the undergraduate student body on all issues concerning campus life. The senate also serves to regulate the student union through the constitution and its bylaws and is responsible for the annual budget, fiscal policies, and election regulations of the student union.

Judicial Council.Chaired by the judicial council president and aided by the vice-presidents of elections and advocacy, the judicial council is composed of a representative from each dorm and peer advocates. In the first of its two roles, the judicial council runs the elections of the student union in accordance with the regulations established by the senate. The judicial council also provides assistance to undergraduate students accused of violating University rules and regulations.

Financial Management Board. Chaired by the student union treasurer, the Student Union Treasurer prepares an annual budget in accordance with the policies established by the senate. The Financial Management Board’s Office also hears appeals for additional funds, is responsible for the production and marketing of The Shirt, and controls the operations of the student businesses through the Student Business Board. In addition to the student union treasurer, two assistant treasurers, and the controllers or treasurers of the executive cabinet organizations compose the Policy Branch of the Student Union Senate Treasurer’s Office.

Executive Programming Board. Chaired by the Chief of Staff, the primary goal of this group will be to prevent overlap in programming and to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of each of the aforementioned group's events in an effort to draw more students to each group's events. It includes a representative from each of the major student union groups on campus as well as a representative from each of the class councils. The Executive Programming Board meets bi-weekly.

Student Union Board (SUB). SUB is the primary programming body of the student union, attempting to access the needs and wants of the undergraduate student body and provide services and social, intellectual, and cultural opportunities that enhance undergraduate student life. SUB coordinates many campus-wide events, including the following: Fall Mall, Literary Festival, Collegiate Jazz Festival, AnTostal, major concerts, weekend movie series, etc.

Hall President's Council (HPC). The Hall President’s Council serves as a forum for the hall presidents of each of Notre Dame’s twenty-seven residence halls to exchange information, coordinate programming, and discuss matters of residence life. Each hall has between one to three voting representatives (depending on number of residents).

Club Coordination Council (CCC).The CCC is composed of the club coordinator and eighteen club council representatives, four from each of the six club divisions, all who serve to provide cohesive club programming. Together, these officers divide the funds allocated by the Student Union Treasurer’s Office among over 250 undergraduate student clubs. The CCC also informs clubs of the regulations surrounding the usage of funds and the obligations as event sponsor to ensure adherence to these regulations.

Class Councils. The class councils exist to promote the well-being of their respective classes by sponsoring functions that promote unity among class members. The freshman class elects one representative from each residence hall to the council. The other three classes elect a president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, on one ticket each in February who are then free to choose council committees that best serve to meet the needs of the class in any given year.
