Biographical / Historical

The Students' Association is made up of all students enrolled at Haverford College and all Bryn Mawr College students living on the Haverford campus. The Association has responsibility for nearly all aspects of student conduct and of student organizations on the campus. The Students' Association in turn delegates authority to the Students' Council and to the Honor Council to carry on its executive, legislative, and judicial functions.

Students' Council supervises many extracurricular activities and allocates to each organization a percentage of the student activity fee. Council appoints students to faculty committees, search committees, and numerous bi-College clubs and committees that direct the social life and keep the Arts active on both campuses. Two members serve as representatives to Board of Managers.

Honor Council administers all aspects of the Honor System and is responsible for interpreting specific matters pertaining to the Honor system.

Plenary is a gathering of the student body in the Fall and Spring to discuss issues on campus, as well as the Alcohol Policy (ratified in the Fall) and the Honor Code (ratified in the Spring). Students present resolutions for question and answer, discussion, and voting. Resolutions passed by the Students' Association are viewed as the will of the body, and Students' Council is then tasked with the carrying out and upholding of any changes or initiatives.
