SPHIS Student Government Association
The SPHIS Student Association was formed in the fall of 2005, following ratification of its bylaws, which are available in Appendix IX-7. Elections were held soon thereafter, electing officers and other positions specified in the bylaws. Since then, the student government has been self-directed and has accomplished the following, among others:
- recognition as a registered student organization;
- membership in the Graduate Student Council, which is the recognized student council for all graduate programs;
- formation of the local student chapter of the Kentucky Public Health Association; and,
- elections in the spring and fall of 2006.
The student association is very active in promoting social functions of the student body and in working for and achieving student benefits.
