  • Leadership Skills
  • Organization & Management Skills
  • Resume Builder

Student Government

Student Government is a duly elected body of student representatives that serve to represent and unify the College for Creative Studies student community. They work to further the goals and desires of the students, and serve as a bridge between the student body and the school faculty, staff, and administration.

More information about the functions & processes of Student Government can be found in the Student Government Constitution.

Weekly Meetings

Student Government meetings take place every Wednesday at 11:30am EST throughout the Fall and Winter semesters. Meetings are open to all students.
During the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semester, Student Government meetings are taking place virtually via Zoom. The Zoom Meeting ID is 948 0100 9408.

Student Government Funding

To propose funding from Student Government, students must fill out an official Student Government Proposal for Funding. Students can edit the form directly in Acrobat, or they can print it, edit it, then scan it back into a digital format. It is also highly encouraged to put together a presentation outlining who you are, what you’re seeking funds for, and all the details that go along with it. The student will then give their presentation at the next Student Government meeting.

If students are seeking funds for a Senior Thesis, they must come prepared with a solid plan. Sketches, cost breakdowns, floor plans, images of past work, research, etc. are all great information to back up the credibility of the proposal. Remember to be specific, diligent, and knowledgeable on the topic of the proposal. There will be times during the Student Government meeting where representatives will ask questions about the proposal & plans.

Completed proposals for funding must be submitted at least 1 day in advance in order to reserve a proposal presentation spot in the next meeting. Proposal forms can be sent to studentgov@collegeforcreativestudies.edu.

Student Advocate

The Student Advocate position was created to provide students a consistent, centralized point of contact for questions, concerns and/or problems they may be experiencing on campus. The position is not intended to eliminate standard office and academic procedures elsewhere on campus, more to provide a supplemental resource for students. The Student Advocate’s primary rule is to ensure that policies are enforced fairly and that students are fully informed of what is being done and why.

To contact the Student Advocate, please email Dan Long at dlong@collegeforcreativestudies.edu

Students With Disabilities

All students are encouraged to disclose disabilities that they feel may affect their academic success. We want you to succeed, and our ability to offer you the best education is made possible if you are receiving the appropriate assistance.

Students identified as having any type of disability are entitled and encouraged to request accommodations.

Find out more and download the Disability Verification Form.

CCS Food Bank

There is a food bank in the Office of Student Affairs for students who have run out of food and do not have the resources to buy more. The concept behind this food bank is that it is an emergency resource for students.

Don’t go hungry, ask for help.
