The English Course Council (ECC), to which all English graduate students automatically belong, holds general and executive meetings every month. The ECC executive consists of eleven officers: Chair, Vice-Chair/Treasurer, Secretary, Communications Officer, Social Director, Graduate Committee Representative, Research Committee Representative, two Faculty Committee representatives (one M.A., one Ph.D.), and two Graduate Students' Association Representatives. Every student in the program is eligible to sit on the executive, the members of which are elected at the first general meeting of the academic year.

Perhaps the most important functions of the ECC executive are promoting student views and concerns to the Department's Graduate Committee and Research Committee, and advocating for individual students and groups to various offices and agencies on campus. The ECC gathers and distributes information for its membership; promotes events important to graduate studies in English—readings, seminars, and conferences; it also serves in a more social way by organizing pubs, skating parties, movie nights, and much more. An ECC member edits The Daily Procrastinator, the newsletter for graduate students in English. Members of the ECC also manage and edit The Fieldstone Review, an online literary journal publishing poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and reviews.
