History

Organizational History:

In 1924, members of the Student Council represented freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors, as well as rural students at Central State Teachers College, now Central Michigan University (CMU). The Council’s main purpose was to provide communication between students and the faculty concerning school matters. Meetings were open to all interested students and faculty. By 1932 the Student Council represented the various student organizations on campus. The Student Council became the Student Senate in 1948. By 1982, the Student Senate had evolved into the Student Government Association (SGA), which acts today as a liaison between students and the administration and has an active voice in student government affairs.

The Clarke also houses additional CMU.SGA collections. Other related records may be filed in the CMU. Office of the President collections.
