SSGA 77 Administration

Spelman Student Government Association

Our Mission

The Spelman Student Government Association (SSGA) is a body composed of elected and appointed student representatives which meets 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 by presenting proposals, programs, activities and resolutions that reflect the tenor of student opinion.

The SSGA also seeks to foster sisterhood among Spelman women as well as to help students gain an understanding of themselves and society. Spelman College is committed to building a community of African-American women who are leaders of tomorrow. The College strongly encourages each woman to get involved in the various committees, programs and activities sponsored by the SSGA.
