Administrative History

The Student Government at the College of Staten Island (CSI) was initially created from the merger of the existing student governments of Richmond College and Staten Island Community College (SICC).

The student government consists of 20 representatives elected by the student body. The student government officially represents the student body to the administration, faculty and other interested parties. The government also coordinates extracurricular activities, runs the student government office, and provides funding and assistance to clubs, publications and special projects.

Scope & Content Note

The records consist of one handbook (c. 1978-1980) and minutes for the meetings of the Student Government. The coverage of meeting minutes is not comprehensive and is best for 1978-1989 and 2001-2005. There are no meeting minutes for the 1982-1983, 1994-1995, 1995-1996, 1997-1998, 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 academic years, and minutes for a large portion of the meetings held during the 1989-1990, 1992-1993, 1993-1994, 1996-1997, 2000-2001 academic years are also missing. For other years, few records are missing.

Meeting minutes from the 1978 academic year are designated as Volume 1. There are no records available for the 1976-1977 or 1977-1978 academic years. As a result, it is unclear how the Student Government functioned immediately after the creation of CSI in September 1976.

It is possible that additional minutes of the Student Government might be filed with the records of the College Council, as the Council's meeting materials sometimes included the minutes of other governing bodies on campus.
