Participate in College Decisions

The College encourages contributions from its students in governance processes. Through student committee involvement, the student body can voice concerns about key decisions and directly engage with the governance structure. Participation in shared governance at Earlham is perhaps one of the most rewarding and educational experiences Earlham students can take from their time here.
