Richmond College Student Government Association

Student self-governance at the University of Richmond can be traced to 1915 with the establishment of the Richmond College Student Council. It then became the Richmond College Student Government Association (RCSGA). The RCSGA is the overarching body of student governance for Richmond College. The association includes the Richmond College Senate, Honor Council, and Judicial Council and works with the Richmond College class cabinets. The members of this group are charged with representing their fellow students' concerns and opinions and serving as liaisons between students and administration, faculty, and staff.

Senate

The members of the Richmond College Senate are charged with representing their fellow students' concerns and opinions and serving as liasons between students and administration, faculty, and staff. The RCSGA President, who is elected by the entire Richmond College student body, leads the Senate. Each class elects six senators and a class chair to represent them.

Class Cabinet System

The Richmond College Student Government Association (RCSGA) Class Cabinet System was implemented in 2003 to create more leadership opportunities, facilitate collaboration with Westhampton College via its class cabinets and concentrate on grade-specific programming, events, and concerns. Each committee has a chair and seven to 14 cabinet members who work with both the senate and the Richmond College dean’s office.
