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.
In order to make sure the voice of the student body is heard, members of the SGA reach out to their peers in class, campus events, and the office. The SGA implements legislation to remedy concerns and aid student groups with their missions and programming. Through efforts and outreach, the organization constantly works to improve 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.
