Student Government Association
We the students of Skidmore College, operating under the authority granted to us by
the Board of Trustees, unite in the formation of the Skidmore College Student Government
Association. Our purpose, with full realization of the responsibilities inherent in
membership, is to establish and maintain conditions of student life conducive to good
scholarship, intelligent citizenship, benevolent service, and individual growth. To
achieve these goals all students reserve the rights to examine, discuss, and decide
matters of student life in the spirit of cooperation and mutual understanding of institutional
policy. The Student Government Association is based upon the pursuit and attainment
of knowledge and truth, and to these ends, students are expected to be exemplars of
academic and social integrity.
All Skidmore College students, with the exception of Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) students and part-time students living off campus, are members of the SGA by virtue of the fact that they pay the Student Activity Fee as part of their tuition.
