Every student is a member of the Student Government Association.
What We Do!
We do it all! From student advocacy to provide financial support to SGA recognized clubs and organizations. We strive to help to create and establish clubs and organizations around campus and provide a voice to the students in student, administrative, and Board of Visitors and Governors affairs. We also provide services such as Safe Ride and the Bike Share Program. We are your guide when it comes to student event planning. We also provide referral services to other departments and outside resources.
There are three branches of the SGA.
The legislative branch is the Student Senate, composed of Senators and the President of each class year. The Senate is an avenue for student feedback and guides the direction of the SGA. The Senate is led by a Speaker elected by a majority of Senators to lead senate proceedings and serve as a member of the Review Board.
The judicial branch is the Honor Board. The Honor Board deals with all aspects of student conduct, and reviews academic and social misconduct cases alongside the Student Affairs Division of the College. This branch is led by the Honor Board Chair, and student members of the Honor Board appointed by the Review Board of the SGA
The executive branch consists of the President and the Executive Board. This branch, led by the President and their senior leadership team executes day-to-day operations and strategic planning for the SGA.
The Review Board, consisting of members of each branch, assists in guiding the long term direction of the Student Government Association.
The Washington College Student Government Association abides by a Constitution that outlines the powers of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. You can access the most recent version of the Constitution here.
