All students are members of the Student Government Association, which is designed to work toward full student participation in all aspects of University life, University affairs, and policy-making. It represents the student body in all facets of University governance and provides services to the campus community.
The executive body of the SGA is made up of the president, vice-president, and comptroller. The president represents the association when the assembly is out of session and heads the executive committee. The vice-president heads all of the association's internal committees such as Parking & Transportation and MSC Advisory. The comptroller runs the association's budget as well as heads the Student Activity Budget Committee which disburses activity and service fee dollars to student groups across campus.
The legislative body of the Association is known as the Assembly and consists of one representative for each recognized student organization and student senators that represent the student body on the University assembly committees. The general elections are held each April for president, vice-president, comptroller, senators, and members-at-large.
The judicial body of the Association is known as Student Court. Seven students serve on the court which reviews student grievance cases.
Membership on Association and Assembly committees is open to all students. The executive committee of the Assembly is composed of the officers of the Association and it functions as the overall planning and executive committee.
