Undergraduate Student Government (USG)

What is USG?

The Undergraduate Student Government hears the concerns encountered by you, as an undergraduate student, in campus life. We work hard to find beneficial solutions by engaging all members of the campus family (administrators, faculty, staff, student groups and the student body at large) to address your concerns. 

The members of USG are elected annually to represent the student body. Senators serve as representatives from the academic colleges and the residential areas, as well as in at-large and diversity affairs positions. They serve on nearly every administrative body of the University, and speak regularly with the administration of various on-campus departments and offices involving undergraduate students.

USG provides opportunities for students to learn, grow, and lead in an environment that promotes cooperation, respect for one another, intellectual and spiritual growth, creative imaginings, and pride in a job well done.

Mission Statement

The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) aims to serve as a bridge between undergraduate students and various governing bodies of the university including administration, faculty, and graduate students as we advocate for the needs of our peers. Through collaboration and initiatives, we support our fellow falcons in the areas of academic success, wellness, safety, and engagement as we strive to build a welcoming community for students of all identities.
