Student Government

SGA Constitution

Mission

The Student Government Association was formed to serve as the delegated voice of the Student Body, in which student opinions may be expressed and empowered in the student environment on campus.

As such, we are committed to advocating for the Student Body through continuous interaction with the students, faculty, staff and administration, ensuring that we are doing everything in our power to improve and enhance the quality of the student experience.

Members

An important role in the Student Government Association is a Senator for the various classes. Per our Constitution, each class is allotted 5 Senators. The Senate is comprised of all the elected Senators in which is vested the legislative power of the Student Government Association. Through legislation, the Senate works towards improving the student experience here at UST. 

In the event that there are vacancies, the Senate will elect members among the Student Body to fill the void. Those wishing to apply for vacancies, please fill out the application.
