Student Government


The undergraduate Student Alliance and the Graduate Student Alliance provide a platform that facilitates and advocates students’ voices with the hope to help better RISD as a whole.

Department Reps and Graduate Department Liaisons work with the Executive Boards to represent all students and majors on issues that matter to students. Town Hall meetings are a chance for all students to actively participate in the RISD Community.

The Alliance and Grad Student Alliance ensure students are represented on academic and other institutional committees. If you’d like to join a committee, please click here click here
