LSTC has three student government organizations: Master's Student Association (MSA) represents M.A.T.S., M.A.M., and M.Div. students, the Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents Th.M. and Ph.D. students and the International Students Association (ISA) represents all of LSTC's international students. MSA consists of elected representatives from each class and a student spouse representative. GSA and ISA also have elected leadership (president, secretary, and treasurer). MSA, ISA and GSA advocate on behalf of students in relation to the faculty and administration. Each organization has an elected advisory representative to LSTC's board of directors.
In addition to student government and student service on seminary-wide committees, students form special interest committees as the need arises. The Anti-Racism Task Force, formed to raise consciousness and make changes related to institutional racism, and Thesis 96, formed to work toward the full inclusion of gay and lesbian persons in the life of the church are examples of student organizations at LSTC.
