The Student Government Association has represented the student body of Towson University for over one hundred years. Established in 1921, the SGA has a long history of planning social and cultural events, promoting leadership, and advocating for student participation in all aspects of life at the university.
In these historic archives, you may encounter words, images or other language used that were reflective of the tenor of our nation, and thus university, at that time in history. Those images may be disturbing and offensive, as they reflect the prejudice of the time. However, they do not reflect Towson University’s values and our commitment toward building a welcoming, diverse and inclusive campus that supports all the members of our community to thrive, regardless of their race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or levels of ableness.
Original Maryland State Normal School Student Government Organization Agreement and Constitution
This agreement between the students, principal, and faculty was handwritten by the first student officers. It establishes the Student Government Association, its responsibilities, and its powers, to be used "both for liberty and order, for the maintenance of the best conditions for scholarly work, and for the moral and social life of the school."
The records in these collections were contributed to University Archives by the current and former members of the SGA.
