Our youthful Student Government President Samuel M. Sliman successfully jeered and ridiculed our loving and devout Director of Technology Aadi Bajpai into setting up this platform to improve engagement of Vanderbilt Students through a Petition site. The site creates a place for the Vanderbilt student body to converse on important issues.

This is based upon prior work by the RIT Student Government. To remain transparent, this site is an open source project available on GitHub


Search for petitions and if a petition similar to yours already exists, sign that petition.This will help raise support for issue and help you better reach the minimum threshold of 200 signatures (as of 1/1/2024) for receiving an official Student Government response.


Use proper spelling and grammar when writing your petition. This will help other users find the petition more easily. Be sure to review our Moderation Policy before posting.


Use social media to spread awareness of your issue. A petition has one year to reach its threshold. If the threshold is not reached, then the petition is archived and available via the search. Student Government may elect to respond to a petition prior to reaching its threshold.


Use of this site falls under the Vanderbilt Student Handbook.

Vanderbilt Student Government reserves the right to edit or remove any petition at any time for violating the Code of Conduct. This includes, but is not limited to, creating an intimidating, hostile or abusive environment for any member of the Vanderbilt community, or posting of any obscene, defamatory, threatening, or otherwise harassing petitions.
