2017-2018 CIU Student Handbook



Student Organizations and Leaders

The Student Government Association helps foster the mission of CIU among

the student body. The various student leaders represent student concerns and

needs to the administration and organize a variety of student events. To be eligible

to serve, a student must demonstrate the heart and character to serve as a

spiritual leader. Candidates must have a minimum 2.3 GPA (cum.), and it must be

maintained while in office. GPA requirements for some offices are higher (Student

Government and Union officers - 2.7; resident assistants - 2.7). Candidates must

not be under any formal school discipline (the Student Constitution provides

additional criteria and guidelines). Those interested in serving should check with

the student executives for procedures. After names are submitted, the Student Life

Division reviews nominated candidates’ credentials for final clearance to run for an

office. The various organizations are:

The Executive Team

responsible for guiding and leading the other student organizations, and in turn the

student body, in their efforts to fulfill the mission of CIU. This team consists of the

student body president, vice president of student body, vice president of student

activities, vice president of finance, vice president of communications and the

executive secretary.

representing the students before the administration and communicating back

to the students. The presidents of all organizations representing a specific

demographic of students serve on the Senate, led by the vice president of the
