Student Role in Institutional Decision Making

Student opinions and views play a significant role in institutional decisions affecting their interests and welfare. A comprehensive standardized student opinion survey is administered to students annually. In addition there is the Core Survey administered in core courses, as well as the Course Assessment in all courses and the Advising Assessment which all students are asked to complete. Students serve on key academic committees such as the Commencement Committee, the Core Curriculum Committee, the Experiential Education Committee, the Round Tables Committee, and the Teacher Education Council.

Particularly important is the role of elected student government representatives in this process. The president along with selected other officers of the Oglethorpe Student Association meet regularly each semester with the University's senior staff to discuss student body concerns. At least twice each year student government representatives meet with the Campus Life Committee of the Board of Trustees. In addition, the Oglethorpe Student Association collaborates with the President of the University and the senior staff in sponsoring periodic "town meetings" to which all students are invited.
