The SGA is the governance body for all undergraduate students at the University of Maryland, College Park. Composed of three branches - executive, legislative, and judicial - the organization works with various student groups, administrators, and government officials to ensure student interests are met.
We reach out to students in class, campus events, and our office - gauging the voice of the student body and making sure it is heard. The SGA implements legislation to remedy concerns and aid student groups with their missions and programming. Through our efforts and outreach, we're constantly working on improving our university.
A main function of the SGA is to allocate the Student Activities Fee to SGA-recognized student groups so they can achieve their goals in engaging students and the surrounding campus community, develop their leadership and civic skills, and personalize the campus experience. The SGA allocates funds to other organizations, including the Student Legal Aid Office and Student Entertainment Events.
We invite you to join us. Bring your unique perspective and talents, and be a part of the process to change our campus for the better. Every student is a member of the Student Government Association, and there are countless opportunities to get involved.
For more information about us, don't hesitate to contact our office at (301) 314-8329, or feel free to stop by and visit us in person. We're located in the Stamp Student Involvement Suite in room 0209J.
