Biographical/Historical Note

The Student Government Association at the Georgia Institute of Technology is the main representative body for students on the Georgia Tech campus. The Association operates under the Dean of Students/Assistant Vice President's office, who reports to the Vice President of Student Affairs, who in turn reports to the President of Georgia Tech. The Student Government Association is divided into three branches: 1. the executive branch, headed by the Undergraduate President and Executive Board; 2. the legislative branch, including the Executive Vice President and House of Representatives; and 3. the judicial branch, comprising a Chief Justice and ten justices. Another branch, the Graduate Student Senate, is the main representative body for graduate students.

A Student Council was first formed to represent the student body at Georgia Tech in 1922. After a hiatus during World War II, the Council reorganized in 1945, and in 1948 affiliated amid some controversy with the National Student Association. During the late 1950s and 1960s, student government expanded its role in campus affairs. By the latter part of the twentieth century, Student Government had attained a prominent position in the operation of the Tech campus.


Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of administrative files of the Student Government Association, including various budget letters, constitutions and by-laws, meeting minutes for a number of committees, and other organization-oriented documents. The files relate to graduate students as well as undergraduates, particularly the files on the Graduate Student Senate (GSS) and graduate student orientation. Topics covered include orientation and representation issues, recruitment of students to participate in student government, student grievances, budget and finance, and numerous departmental and school committees. Also included are files on issues of specific concern to students, particularly tuition and student fee increases, housing, parking, and proposals for new courses.
