House of Delegates

About

The Liberty University Student Representative Branch exists to allow students the opportunity to make a real difference on our campus. The House of Delegates (HOD) serves as one of the two houses in the Representative Branch and is comprised of Delegates who represent the student body as a whole. The House meets every other week and is a place for students to share ideas, collaborate and grow together as they serve the student body. Delegates are strongly encouraged to join a Committee where ideas are debated and legislation is crafted. Apply to be a delegate and make a difference at Liberty University.


 

Christopher Thomas Porter

Speaker of the House

Born in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, Christopher Porter came to Liberty University in the Fall of 2016. Upon arriving on campus, he immediately joined the House of Delegates and won a Chair position on the Spiritual Affairs Committee. Early on, Christopher showed that he was a leader who cared deeply about Liberty's Student Government and the concerns of the campus. Advocating for changes like the Sexual Assault and Suicide Prevention Training for hall leadership, and protecting the foundations of the university, he showed that he cared about the role of SGA in the growth of Liberty University. Over his time in Student Government, Christopher has served as the first Spiritual Affairs Director in the Executive Branch, created the system of districting Liberty's campus for better student representation, and most recently was elected as Speaker of the House in his senior year. Christopher is thrilled to be able to lead the House of Delegates and hopes to transform the House into a larger and more efficient body that is able to represent all students across Liberty's campus.
