Students on HKS Day of Service

Kennedy School Student Government

Members of the Kennedy School Student Government (KSSG) represent their classmates and convey student ideas and concerns to the Harvard Kennedy School administration and faculty members, to help ensure that their student experience is rewarding and memorable. They also organize events throughout the academic year, including dances, family-friendly gatherings, and the HKS Talent Show.

KSSG members are elected by the HKS student body, and are led by an executive committee comprised of a student president, executive vice president, and 9 vice presidents who focus on academic affairs, communications, diversity, finance, internal affairs, international student affairs, professional development, student activities, students with partners/families, and technology and operations. Each degree program class also elects representatives to serve as KSSG members.

The main KSSG elections are held each fall, with executive committee members serving one-year terms.
