Student Groups & Activities

Members of Advocates' Forum pose in a group

The student organizations of the Crown School provide students with the opportunity to engage in leadership and action on a variety of issues of importance to the school and the professions we represent, while also providing the student body with structures for community and relationship building. Crown student organizations take an active role in the discussion of academic, professional, and political issues in the School. Student organizations also sponsor various social activities that enrich the graduate school experience. All registered master’s students are members of the Crown School Student Government Association, and all registered doctoral students are members of the Crown School Doctoral Student Organization.
