The Spelman Student Government Association (SSGA) is composed of student representatives who meet regularly to discuss matters of general concern regarding students. The assembly acts as a liaison between the student body and the faculty, staff and administration.
Representatives present proposals, programs, activities and resolutions that reflect the tenor of student opinion. They also seek to further sisterhood among Spelman women as well as to help students gain an understanding of themselves, our society and our heritage. In addition to discussing educational and social issues confronting Spelman College students, the Student Government Association allocates funds to all student clubs and organizations to assist them with their programming and leadership needs.
