SGA President's Message

Fellow Rams,

I bring you greetings on behalf of the Winston-Salem State University Student Government Association. I am William Gibson, a junior Political Science major from Charlotte, NC and I serve as your Student Government Association (SGA) president 2018-2019. The motto for Student Government Association this year is “Navigate the Climate.”  Our SGA is more than an acronym and more than an organization. The Student Government Association is an organism of representatives that exist to amplify the student voice by providing service to our communities through initiatives and partnerships, governance through representation on campus boards, committees, adopting legislation that enhances the quality of student life, and advocacy on behalf of students from all walks of life.

The purpose of this strategic plan is to fulfill our commitment to always remain transparent and accountable to every student, this great university, and to supporters and friends. It is my hope that as you turn each page that your level of confidence in SGA’s ability to represent you and your needs will increase. I can assure you, as we navigate the climate, your opportunities will increase. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Join SGA in navigating the climate, as we aspire to become America’s next nationally recognized institution. You have a voice and it matters!

Ever your servant,

William Gibson
Student Body President
