Student Government

Student Government

Student councils and committees are a vital part of the Washington and Lee community. We believe in structures that are student-led, student-governed and student-elected.

Executive Committee

Our Executive Committee (affectionately known as the EC), is made up of representatives from all class levels who report to the president of the student body. A representative for the incoming first-year class is chosen at the beginning of the school year — so start thinking of a campaign slogan now!

The Executive Committee is entrusted with administration of the Honor System and is responsible for allocating funds to student organizations.

Student Judicial Council

The Student Judicial Council (SJC) helps to uphold Washington and Lee's commitment to individual responsibility and honorable behavior among students. The council helps investigate and acts upon student misconduct on and off campus that is not governed by the Executive Committee or other conduct boards.
