Who We Are

ESG 2018

Who We Are

We are ESG (Earlham Student Government) 2018 - a group of motivated and committed individuals who are passionate about building the Earlham community further and serve as a connection between different student groups as well as between students, faculty, staff, and administration. As ESG it is our responsibility to confront problems on campus, manage crises, create effective solutions, and build coalitions around campus. We are working hard to advocate for students needs and wishes as well as to provide more accessibility to campus resources in all areas.

We are also always up for conversations and new ideas and are happy to chat with you whenever you see us around campus!
