Executive Branch

What is the Executive Branch?

The Executive Branch of the Stout Student Association elevates student voices by carrying out the day-to-day functions of SSA. Additionally, executives comprise the Executive Board Committee (EBC), which meets regularly to discuss SSA business and plan the direction of SSA and execute SSA programs and functions.
