The Saint Louis University Student Government Association is a resource and a voice for all SLU students.
SGA is here to bridge the gap between students, faculty, staff and administration.
We, the associated students of Saint Louis University, in order to establish a representative student government, to provide an open forum for dialogue and a voice for student opinions concerning the affairs of the University; to involve students in a productive partnership of shared governance with the faculty, staff and administration of the University; to promote the welfare and unity of the greater student community; to uphold the ideals and values of the Jesuit Catholic tradition, especially the ideal of “Men and Women for Others;” do hereby ordain and establish this constitution for the service of the student body ad majorem Dei gloriam.
The application to apply for an SGA position will be available here in the spring semester.
The Executive Board consists of the:
- Vice president of academic affairs
- Vice president for student organizations
- Vice president of finance
- Vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion
- Vice president of communications and internal affairs
- Vice president of international affairs.
Students select these representatives through a campuswide election that takes place on the last Monday of February.
The SLU student body selects the Senate through a campus vote, which takes place on the last Monday of February. The Senate is a legislative body composed of representatives from all of SLU’s schools and colleges, the Residence Hall Association (RHA), Commuter Students, Transfer Students, the Black Student Alliance, First-Year Students and International Students.
Committee chairs and executive staff make up the SGA Cabinet. SGA's Cabinet collaborates with leaders from across the University to implement changes that benefit students. The cabinet consists of the:
- Chief of staff
- Legislative advisor
- 15 committee chairs
Committee representatives are members of the association who are actively involved in our many committees. Committee representatives hold voting rights within their respective committees but do not vote on legislation during Senate meetings. The Committee for Internal Affairs manages an interview process to select committee members.Visit the Committees Page
Each quarter, SGA's Executive Branch provides the student body with a report that details its work over the last few months. More information about any of these topics can be provided to interested students via the emails referenced on the reports or by contacting email@example.com.
