Become an SGA Senator for the 2020/2021 Academic Year!
What does it mean to be a Senator with SGA?
As the representatives of the student body as a whole, student senators hold invaluable roles on our Student Government Association. Senators have the right to bring up issues or student concerns, to introduce proposals, and to debate as well as vote over issues or proposals on behalf of the student body in weekly public General Assembly Meetings.
What is the purpose of SGA?
RUSGA is the representative of 4,500 plus students. Its purpose is to collaborate with professors and administrators to improve student life and provide valuable learning experiences. We strive to unite the student body and to foster a positive climate throughout our university!
The Senate of the Student Government Association shall be an assembly of undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in one of the colleges at the institution. Special Representatives from student organizations may petition for and hold seats in the Senate dependent upon a simple majority vote of the Senate. In addition, all senators must be in good standing in relationship to their academic and student conduct. This will be verified by a university official.
