What is Student Government?

The Student Government Association is comprised of undergraduate students that serve the student body. Constitutionally, we are the student's voice and enact change on campus through legislation, advocacy, awareness, and representation on the Board of Trustees. We are a governing body that exists to constantly improve the University by including student input on ALL changes and issues that impact the lives of students.
