The General Meeting is the highest legislative body in the College. Its membership includes all students, College officers (Master, Academic Adviser, Residence Tutor, Dons), Fellows and honourary members appointed by the Master. The General Meeting is convened at least three times each academic year with all members present eligible to vote. The Meeting has the power to alter the College constitution and to pass legislation which is of benefit to the general membership of Stong College.
Much of the power of the General Meeting is held by standing committees of the General Meeting which are made up of volunteers from among the College membership. These standing committees are charged with responsibility for the social, financial and governmental aspects of College student life. The Standing Committees are: Athletic Committee, which is responsible for the organization and coordination of representative teams in inter-college athletics; College Aid Committee, which provides short-term loans to students; College Planning Committee, which gives direction in matters of the philosophy and aims of the College; Curriculum Committee, to assist the Academic Advisor and Master on the administration of the College Course Programme with special concern for the evaluation of courses; and the Don's Selection Committee, which reviews all Don's and the Residence Tutor annually, recommends them for renewal and serves as the Residence Tutor 's Selection Committee. The Executive Committee consists of the Chairs of each committee along with the Orange Management Board Chair, elected officers and the Programmes Committee Chair. The Executive Committee has overall governance of the College with the power to make decisions which are subsequently ratified by the General Meeting. It has power over the budget, and is responsible for the care and maintenance of the rooms, furniture, and equipment in all
student-controlled areas of the College. This includes the Coffee Shop, leisure facilities, and the selection of managers for student services, particularly the Orange Snail.
Several Committees of General Meeting are no longer in operation, including the Communications Committee, the Cultural Committee, the Social Committee and the Services Committee. Many of the functions of these bodies are now performed by the Programmes Committee which is responsible for social and cultural affairs at the College and includes in its membership representatives of the
General Meeting as well as the Manager of the Coffee Shop/Pub, the Beckett Theatre and the Director of the Zacks Gallery.
