We promised you that your voice would matter, so here are some ways to get involved!
Go to a Executive Cabinet Meeting
The SGA only works when dedicated individuals are working hard to ensure that everything goes smoothly. As a member of the SGA, you have the ability to go to any Executive Cabinet meeting. You can speak at the meeting if you’d like, express your opinion, or even ask questions of your elected leaders. We want you’re input, so please come on by.
Join the Senate
The Student Senate is the Legislative Branch of the Student Government Association. The Senate can legislate on any issue concerning students. All motions go through one of ten Senate Committees: Academic and Faculty Affairs, Buildings and Grounds, Constitutional Order, Dining Advisory, Election Rules and Procedures, Ethics and Conduct, Legislative and Administrative Affairs, Publicity, Telecommunications, and Environmental Sustainability.
Senators are chosen through elections at the beginning of each academic year through the residence halls and the student body at-large. But you can sign up by collecting fifty signatures of your peers and going to a meeting to be accepted.
It’s been said before that the SGA is a two-way street: it only works if students get involved and take control of their university. We’ve added a section on our site that allows you to submit suggestions and feedback about our school and ways we can better serve you. No issue is too big, and no issue is too small. If you have questions about police enforcement, gelato in the UC, or even just wondering where you need to go to register for classes, let us know. Click here to go straight to the online form.
Facebook and Twitter
By simply following the SGA on Facebook and Twitter you can receive the latest update on what’s happening at our school and track the rise of Eagle Nation. You can even follow the Student Senate on Facebook or Twitter to be updated on the latest motions and bills that are flowing through the schools legislative process. It’s a simple way to ask questions and learn more about your UMW SGA.
