Run for Governor

What is a Community Governor?

Each of the 15 residential communities on campus elect a Community Governor. This individual appoints a community government of her or his peers, manages a budget, as well as plans large programs/initiatives to serve their community. The Governor also serves on the RHA Board of Governors, voting on grant requests and representing the needs of their community every Tuesday from 7:30-9:30.
