Easel 66: A History of the Executive Committee and Student Self Government at Washington and Lee

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

On May 22, 1905, Washington and Lee students met in Lee Chapel to address mismanagement of student organizations and concerns about the Honor System. It was at this meeting that the students created the Executive Committee of the Student Body and charged it with promoting college spirt, developing mutual respect among students, addressing university-wide concerns, and pursuing improvements to student life. From the first recorded Honor System hearing in February of 1906 to the campus political party system that existed in the middle of the twentieth century, the Executive Committee as an institution has remained a fixture of campus life in expected and surprising ways.
