Since its origins in 1946 Thunderbird has been educating global leaders with the goal of creating sustainable prosperity worldwide. Throughout its history the school has had many shifts to adapt to ongoing challenges and issues around the globe. The student government was created to assist in this type of reforms to ensure the students best interest are taken into consideration in any subject or matter which could affect the future of the student body.
As representatives of the student body we seek to promote the welfare of each individual on campus by enhancing the student experience, along with ensuring the satisfaction of the institution as a whole. As citizens of the world we strive to promote values of diversity and inclusion to create a sustainable environment, in order to excel as professionals on and off the classroom.
The main objective of the student government is to provide the students with the opportunity to raise their interests and concerns, for the faculty and administration to adjust according to the needs and wants of students, as long as it is in the best interest of the institution as a whole. Proper management and allocation of resources is essential from the student government to promote school traditions and cultural involvement, which has become key for the development of global leaders for many year.
Regional Night: The student government is in charge of hosting 2 regional nights per semester, which revolve around the goal of promoting values of diversity and inclusion. Each regional night has a theme to follow for the student body to learn and experience the cultural richness from different parts of the world. The whole event is student lead including performances, trivia, along with food and beverages related to the region being celebrated.
Gala: This event is to celebrate our students graduating each semester before becoming part of our beloved alumni network. Students graduating who are not part of the student government are involved through the gala committee to ensure a successful night for our future graduates. Themes vary from time to time considering the interests of the graduates at the time. The whole student body is invited to this event, making it a true global gala.
Club Day: There are many clubs on campus for students to get involved based on their interests and preferences. The student government provides these clubs with the opportunity to showcase what they have to offer at club day, with students having the opportunity to join as many clubs as they prefer. This is just another example of the importance of diversity and inclusion, and the richness that the thunderbird student body has to offer. Some of our clubs include the Thunderbird Management Consulting, Net Impact, Rugby, Thunderbird Finance Association, among others providing multiple opportunities for students to engage in the professional and social scheme.
