Biographical Note

Kansas State University’s first Student Council was formed with the approval of a constitution on June 12, 1909.  By 1919 the Student Council had undergone changes and became the Student Self Governing Association.  In 1926 the student government adopted a new constitution and became the Student Governing Association.  Since the reorganization the Student Governing Association has had a President elected by the students.  The rest of the Student Governing Association was comprised of a small representative body elected by the students.  The Student Council assumed the responsibility for the executive functions as well as the judicial. 

During the 1953-1954 year there was a shift where the student council switched from a small council of students to a three branch form of government with executive, legislative and judicial branches.  The legislative branch debates and votes on legislative proceedings and allocates the funds from the student privilege fees.  The judicial branch is meant review non-academic disciplinary student issues at Kansas State University.  The executive branch acts as the representative of the student body to the university administration.
