The Student Government is first and foremost an organization through which students can appeal to the administration. SGA also organizes events -social, academic, and service oriented- that enhance student life at CIM.
2014-2015 SGA Officers
President: Gabrielle Skinner
My name is Gabrielle Skinner and I am the President of 2014-1015 Student Government. I like being a part of SGA because I like the opportunity to enrich student life at the conservatory, while also taking a more serious stand on student issues that come up. I also enjoy our philanthropic side, SGA does a lot to communicate with the community, and we choose a philanthropic organization every year to support.
I enjoy organizing events like the benefit recital we held last spring because you have the chance to interact with members of the Cleveland community you wouldn't meet otherwise and give them a good impression of CIM. It's also fun to talk to students on Monday morning Donut Days and see how they are doing.
I'm a sophomore at CIM and am majoring in violin performance. I am in CIM's student government because it provides a way to help satisfy the needs of students at the conservatory as well as the community.
Elora Grace Lencowski
I am a sophomore vocal major who is also studying piano, and I chose SGA because I wanted to play an active part in the student life at CIM. I think public outreach via fundraising and volunteer service is an important element in a community, and I wanted to be a part of that with other colleagues and peers of mine. I enjoy getting to plan and participate in many of the social events we host for the student body, and I encourage others to be an active part of SGA as well.
