Men's Student Government
The Lander College of Arts and Sciences (LAS) men’s student-body government (LSG) goals are to inform, empower, and unite the students of LAS in order to maximize their daily experience, and help them navigate the Touro system. The LSG will ensure that students are represented throughout every phase of their college Journey. We understand that attending college presents unique challenges for everyone, and we aim to work together in order to identify and solve our common problems. The LSG shall be comprised of and administered entirely by students and will represent the needs, concerns, complaints, requests and initiatives of the student body. The LSG will also serve as an intermediary between the student body and the administration and will actively advocate and engage in conversations pertinent to the success and safety of those attending LAS. Lastly, the government will inform and advise students of any new and pre-existing programs, and initiatives taking place in and around LAS.
The government is run democratically and annual elections are held.
We need your help and feedback. This is for the students, by the students. We welcome everyone’s participation.
