2012- 2013 President’s Welcome
If you are reading this, you have successfully navigated your way to the Student Community Government, Inc. of Rhode Island College website! As the 43rd President of SCG, Inc., I would like to extend a whole-hearted "welcome!" and thank you for your interest.
Student Community Government, Inc. has been the "Voice of the Student Body" since its incorporation in 1974. Many prominent local figures within the community have served as officers throughout the years, passing down traditions of leadership, service, and a strong desire to cater to the student population. Our mission this year will be no different. As your student government, we will facilitate the growth and continuity of student organizations on this campus, as well as act as the central forum for students to bring forth and address the various issues affecting students at Rhode Island College. Mainly, we are here for you!
For the 2012-2013 academic year, our main objectives are simple: address and educate. Rhode Island College has a very diverse student population. As your student government, we will strive to ensure that your needs are met as appropriately as possible. Over the past few years, we have been misunderstood as an organization, in terms of our progress and evidence of tangible involvement on campus. If you gather nothing else from this message, I would like this to be perfectly clear: while it is true that we work for you, we also need your help! I implore you to bring any concerns (or ideas) to myself, a member of my Executive Council, or any Parliament Represetnative that you see listed on this site. We will assist you with any concern, be it large or small!
There is always some that may be improved upon and these goals are well within reach if we work together as a student body. Whether you are a first year student, transfer, or non-tranditional student, there are many opportunities that exist here for you. Take advantage of all the resources that Rhode Island College has to offer! So please, peruse our website and see for youself what potential there is for growth. If you are interested, I hope that you will join us! We would love to have you and your ideas. In the mean time, study hard; but more importantly, enjoy yourself and the time you spend here. These should be the best years of your life!
