Communicate & Advocate

Earlham Student Government


Advocating for student interests. Always.

Earlham Student Government (ESG) has a long history of supporting current students at Earlham College and of facilitating communication between students and other constituents. ESG 2018 continues this commitment, and serves as the representatives of the Earlham College student body at numerous platforms.

ESG organises weekly Student Senate meetings that are open to all students. This is a platform for expressing concerns, discussing EC policies, and sharing student events and activities. We encourage you to attend Student Senate and connect with your student government!

What We Do


ESG represents the shared interests of the current student body at various platforms. We engage with Student Life, Faculty, Alumni Council, the Board of Trustees, and many other committees, departments, and community partners.

Student Activities and Clubs

The Student Organizations Council (SOC), a subset of ESG, oversees all registered student organizations and clubs. SOC also distributes funding to clubs, organizes trainings for club leaders, and hosts Involvement Fairs.

Senate and Student Forums

ESG organizes a weekly Student Senate meeting that is open to all current Earlham students. We also host two All-Student Forums each semester, centered around issues directly relevant to students at that time.


ESG hosts regular events meant to bring the student body together. Maroon Monday (a celebration of EC pride) and Day of Kindness are particularly important traditions. We also regularly co-host events with campus partners.


ESG is responsible for nominating student representatives to a number of standing and ad-hoc committees on campus. This ensures that student voices have space and representation in all pertinent discussions.


With a student body as diverse and passionate as Earlham's, disagreements are inevitable. ESG facilitates conversations among students, and between students and other constituents, whenever such disagreements arise.


Earlham is where I learned to speak truth to power — with respect.
— Alan Price, Earlham's 18th President and former ESG President
