SSP Student Council

The Security Studies Program Student Council plays an integral role in the planning and execution of student events, as well as providing a voice of the student body to the administration and faculty of SSP. Since its inception in the Fall of 2013, the SSP Student Council has played a critical role in establishing and maintaining an exceptional degree of camaraderie among the students, faculty and administration of the program.

Student Council hosts various student events designed to enhance professional development, build a sense of community within SSP, and to connect SSP students to SSP faculty, professionals in the field, alumni, and the Georgetown Community at large. Some of these events include:
• Weekly Happy Hours 
• Bi-Annual Flag Football Game 
• Professor Spotlights 
• Alumni Spotlights
• Informal Alumni Networking Events
• Friendsgiving 
• Fall Semester Holiday Party 
• Interest Group Outings 
• Annual Nationals Baseball Game 

Student Council also spearheads a number of philanthropic events on campus.  Student Council hosts these events in partnership with Objective Zero, an alumni-led non-profit founded to combat veteran suicide. In a single semester, Georgetown SSP students raised over $2,500, making them one of Objective Zero’s top-tier “5-Star Supporters”. You can find out more about Objective Zero on their webpage, linked here. Some of the philanthropy events Student Council hosts or participates in include: 
• Covert Affair Gala and Silent Auction 
• P.O.K.E.R. Night 
• Trivia Nights 
• Fall Food Drive
