A Message From Your SGA President and Vice-President
A new decade has arrived and the McClinton- Whigham Administration would like to extend the warmest welcome to all of the incoming and returning Rattlers to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Established on October 3, 1887, FAMU is the highest ranking public HBCU and without a doubt the best historically black college and university in the nation. Located in Florida’s Capital City, sitting on the highest of seven hills, with top ranked students from around the country. Nearly 200 registered organizations focusing on cultural awareness, community service, publications, and academics. Our university consists of 14 colleges and schools that adequately prepare our students to be trailblazers in their respective fields of study. We have an extensive network of faculty, staff, and alumni who are ready to support and guide Rattlers on their four-year matriculation. Additionally, the Student Government Association (SGA) is here to put FAMU FIRST to provide an incomparable experience here at FAMU.Established in 1959, the Student Government Association has produced outstanding leaders, fostering our nation’s future leaders. Since its conception, its focal objective remains synonymous, “To uphold student processes and defend student rights”. The McClinton-Whigham Administration is truly excited to contribute to this indelible legacy of leadership. Our system of government is full of capable student leaders who strive to uphold a standard of enriching the student experience both in and out of the classroom. We are dedicated to our respective roles and stand on common ground to address campus-wide concerns. We believe that our actions and decisions should take on a delegate role, matching the desires of our constituents. We encourage the student body to engage every facet of the student processes by attending SGA meetings, functions, and initiate an open dialogue with student leadership. This avenue of interaction is conducive to a campus environment that promotes growth and intellectual progress.Ultimately, the vision of McClinton-Whigham Administration is to continue to exemplify SGA’s motto of “Leadership and Service” and to reassure the FAMU community that our expectations do not stray far from that motto. We promised to focus on Advocacy, Campus Safety, Technology, Eco-Friendliness, and Student Life and to make significant improvements to each of these areas and many others. These objectives and priorities are essential elements to the formula for student success. As students, we are ultimately the most important stakeholders of this institution and this administration will never minimize the power of the student voice. This can only be accomplished when we all put aside our differences and put FAMU First as we strike together from the top!
