Wilson College Government Association (WCGA)

The Wilson College Government Association (WCGA) is a student-run organization that is jointly responsible for the rules that govern the college campus. Comprised of elected student representatives, WCGA acts as a liaison between faculty, staff, and students in an effort to initiate policy discussion based on any concerns and/or questions that may arise from students in the course of her/his study at Wilson. 

The association, on behalf of its fellow students, is responsible for ensuring student representation at all meetings dealing with student affairs, including those held by the faculty and staff, of which full reports are then given to the student body. WCGA also governs over all student activities and clubs with the understanding that each club and activity is representative of the larger community. WCGA operates in accordance with the Wilson College Bluebook and the Honor Principle, both of equal importance in serving the student body and ensuring that each voice is heard.

Mission Statement
The Wilson College Government Association represents all full-time undergraduate students; acting as link between the administration, faculty, and students. Guided by the Honor Principle, we promote a sense of community, discovery, and academic growth through active leadership. WCGA is committed to the empowerment of students by providing them with a vehicle for the expression of ideas and the formation of open and honest dialogue within the College community through the shared governance of Wilson College.
