STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA)

The Student Government Association (SGA) at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point (UWSP) is the shared governance representative of the entire student body under WI State Statute 36.09(5). SGA’s role is to be active participants in the governance of the university, representing the interests of the student body by creating policy working towards the goals of the university as a whole. SGA is structured through three separate branches of government: the Legislative Branch (Student Senate), the Executive Branch (President, Vice President and Officers), and the Judicial Branch.

Their mission is to work with faculty, staff, and administration in order to realize the full potential of UWSP and provide the best environment possible for the student body through the development of student organizations, innovative programs, and student-friendly policies.

Students who want to know exactly what is happening to the money they pay in segregated fees each semester should think about joining one of the faculty/student University Committees where most of the decisions affecting students are made.

As a student at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP), students are already a member of the Student Government Association. SGA is always looking for prospective members who are interested in becoming active student leaders on campus! For more details regarding membership and involvement check out the SGA website at:

RESIDENCE HALL ASSOCIATION (RHA)
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) is a student shared governance body created to represent students who live within the residential living program on campus. This group of student leaders are dedicated to making the campus living experience better for residents by recommending policy changes, providing special event and social programming, and represents residents’ concerns to administrative bodies (Housing, Food Services, Facilities, etc.). RHA functions as a communication link ensuring that voices and opinions are heard of the residential student population on campus. RHA also promotes leadership and personal development through conferences, programs, workshops, and various board positions.

RHA programs that promote community development, education, wellness, and social interaction and can vary from “drive-in movies” to “self-defense nights” to sponsoring candidates for homecoming, hosting dances, fundraisers, movie nights, etc... The only limit is the students’ needs, interests and imagination!

Getting involved with RHA can be very simple. Anyone can become an active member of an RHA committee or attend weekly General Assembly meetings.  Hall residents can also participate in hall meetings and programs.  To learn more details about RHA check out their website at:
