‌The 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.
