Our Mission

“The Student Government Association will work toward full student participation in all areas of university life, university affairs, and policy making. The Student Government Association will serve as the student voice to the university administration, faculty, and other campuses. In addition, the Student Government Association will implement the philosophy that all students be encouraged to govern themselves and be responsible for their government. The Student Government Association shall work with the faculty and administration to create and maintain comprehensive and quality academic programs, student services, and activities which contribute to the total development of University of Missouri – Saint Louis students, alumni, and the metropolitan, state, national, and International community.”
