The Student Assembly is the student's government at the College of William and Mary. Including both graduates and undergraduates, it represents the students' voice to the faculty, administration, community and state. It also provides services to the college community, acting as the sponsor and coordinator for several student activities and projects both on and off campus. The Student Assembly consists of different branches, including the Executive Council which is divided into seven departments, the Review Board, the Senate, and the Elections Commission. These branches assist the student in both their academic endeavors and in pursuing wider campus and community relations.

History

Prior to 1993, there were separate student government associations for undergraduate and graduate students at William and Mary. In 1993, President Timothy J. Sullivan created the Commission on Student Governance (CSG) to unify the two student governments. Between 1993-1994, the CSG met with 22 focus groups to survey what kind of government they want to form. In the spring of 1995, the students voted to create the new Student Assembly and Jonas Geissler was elected its first president (Alumni Gazette, June 1995, pg. 13-14 at [[1]]).
