Student Government Association

voters‌The SGA's primary mission is to consistently work toward making the student experience at SSW as fulfilling and rewarding as possible.  The SGA does this in several ways:

  • By assessing and addressing student needs, ideas and concerns and bringing these to the attention of the SSW administration and other important stakeholders.
  • By sponsoring student activities and encouraging student participation in supported groups in order to create a sense of connection to the SSW and Baltimore communities.
  • By committing to provide a positive and accepting space for discussion
  • By working closely with the Office of Student Services (OSS) to appoint student representatives to serve on faculty committees.
