Student Self Governance

Abridged version of SSG

In 2012, the Institution initiated Student Self Governance (SSG), a council of students selected through an interview process. SSG aims to enhance leadership skills and learning off-class. It bridges the gap between the governing body and students’ needs by enabling the student participation in management review meetings. SSG provides an unique opportunity to students who can commit to maintain a shared set of community values as it can create a positive campus experience and teach critical life skills. SSG encourages creativity, leadership, risk-taking, and learning from mistakes, facilitating the ideas and recommendations of today’s youth. Student Self Governance aims to safeguard and enhance the rights, opportunities, and quality of life of all students at the institutional level, fostering a healthy, safe community.
