Committees are groups of representatives charged with a specific function or an area of oversight. Student Government committees are organized by students to work on issues pertaining to specific facets of campus concerning students. Committee representatives can be students, faculty members, and staff members. While all senators need to be part of a committee, not all student committee members are necessarily senators. Any student can become involved in a committee, contact us if you are interested or just show up.
We promote the Student Government Association through all forms of media including web, social media, press releases, newsletters, posters, Student Message of the Day, and any others. Tune in to our show on 90FM for an update on Student Government and issues pertaining to student life.
90FM Schedule: TBD
