What is the USGA?

USGA stands for University Student Government Association.

The USGA is the campus-wide student government that represents UMB students on campus.  The USGA is comprised of Student Senators who are elected each year to represent the seven different professional schools and the USGA suppored campus wide orgnaizations at monthly meetings (usually the second Tuesday of each month).  The USGA Senate meetings center around issues and events that involve all UMB schools and their respective students.  

What does the USGA do?

The USGA works towards enhancing the quality of life for all UMB students. The USGA seeks to  address student concerns that may arise throughout the school year, such as parking and campus safety issues to name a few.  Furthermore, the USGA promotes the free exchange of ideas and advocates for student rights.  It financially co-sponsors events that provide campus-wide educational, cultural, and social programs.  The USGA also provides several stress relieving and fun-time activities where students from different schools and programs can meet each other such as our free student appreciation luncheons, Fall Fest, social nights, mixers and much more!

How can I get involved?

All students are welcome to participate in all USGA events and attend our monthly USGA Senate meetings (see calendar) to get involved with the issues discussed or in USGA event planning.  Meetings are held in the Multi-Purpose Room on the second floor of the Southern Management Corporation Campus Center on Lombard and Green.
