Press Clipping: Vassar Student Association External Review

Vassar Student Association External Review

The VSA Operations Committee is excited to announce that the VSA will be undergoing a full external review.

Operations Committee has hired the SG Consulting Group, a firm that specializes in student governments, to perform this review. A member of the firm will be on - campus on December 3rd and 4th, during which time he will conduct interviews with students (both involved in the VSA and in other orgs) and administrators, as well as hosting an open forum for all students to attend and voice their concerns with the VSA. The forum will occur on December 3rd, at 6:30 pm in the Villard Room. Pizza will be served.

In recent years, the VSA has been shown to be inaccessible or thought irrelevant to the majority of the student body. There has been under-representation of many student groups within the VSA and certain positions on the VSA are virtually unattainable for students of particular financial need due to the extreme nature of the time commitment involved in holding these positions. We are aware of these problems, and many more, and we believe that this external review is an important step in making the VSA an organization which truly serves all students, and allows for full participation of all students who wish to be involved. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact the VSA Operations Committee at We would like to be transparent in this process, so please let us know if you would like more information at any point.

The information we receive from SG Consulting will be available to everyone and will be used by the Operations Committee to formulate changes to the VSA.
