We seek to move students who participate in the Student Government Association, honor societies, leadership programs, and student clubs and organizations toward the process of self-governance. Self-governance means students are accountable to each other and the wider community - for speaking and acting with integrity, reliability, and accountability.
At its heart, self-governance gives students real responsibility and accountability for their actions, behaviors, and growth.
Self-governance starts with these beliefs:
- As an adult, you are capable of making good decisions.
- As a leader, you can address problems with others with maturity, openness, and civility.
- As a member of the community, you will work to make the campus community the best it can be.
Self-governance is not always easy, but it’s an approach that we believe encourages thoughtful actions, deliberate decisions, and real personal growth.
