ADMINISTRATIVE HISTORY

The Students' Union is the independently incorporated organization of student government at St. Jerome's. All students who are registered at St. Jerome's are eligible for membership in the Students' Union. The Students' Union primarily exits to serve all students of St. Jerome's and to respond to any of their concerns. The Students' Union acts as a liaison between the administration and the students. It facilitates social events and information sessions and sponsors activities which promote student participation.

The Students' Union council is made up of five executive officers (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Social Convenor), and a number of student representatives. By 2013 the Executive Officers were the President, the Vice-President and Administrative Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the Human Resources Officer, and the Public Relations Officer.
