Student Government

The Student Government Association (SGA) is actively involved in all aspects of student life. It develops new activities and serves as a liaison between the student body and the campus administration. Serving on SGA can help you develop your communication, organizational, and leadership skills. It is also a great way to meet lots of people! SGA can be an excellent opportunity if you're considering a career in government, politics, communications, or public administration.

Members work with staff, administration, and faculty to develop all areas of student life, and represent students on university committees. SGA also reviews and offers recommendations to the campus dean for portions of the segregated fee budget. The segregated fee budget funds a number of programs on campus, as well as all of UW-Sheboygan's clubs and on campus organizations.  The SGA office is located in the Commons building, Room 4201.

Legal to Participate

The UW-Sheboygan Student Government Association (SGA) is a result of the Wisconsin State Statute 36.09 (5), which gives students the legal obligation to participate in campus governance. SGA is the official student voice of the UW-Sheboygan campus. An organization that provides a great avenue for utilizing leadership and organizational skills, SGA promotes the general welfare and interest of the student body and UW-Sheboygan.

Allocating Resources

SGA has made the campus Student Life and Interests Committee (SLIC) responsible for allocating more than $130,000 in segregated university fee dollars annually to campus clubs and organizations. SGA also advocates on behalf of students on the national, state and local levels for adequate financial aid and other issues through the efforts of the UW System United Council.

Committee Representation

SGA members also serve as representatives on a number of campus Collegium committees, or appoint students to serve on these committees. Committees with active student representation include Aids, Awards & Appeals (AAA), Student Life and Interests (SLIC), Appointments, Athletics, Curriculum, Steering, and others.

Activity Planning and Leadership

In addition to its governance functions, SGA also is active in planning student activities on campus, including the Fall Kick-Off and Spring Picnic celebrations. The group also serves as a source of leadership development, offering a monthly Leaders Lunch for student organization leaders and a Student Organizations Information Fair to encourage membership and participation in campus clubs and organizations.

For information, contact: or contact Student Affairs at 459-6633. Meetings held at noon in the Student Organizations Room (above the Commons). Specific meeting days are determined by the Student Government Association Senators each term.

Students also have a voice in the statewide institutional governance structure. The UW Colleges Student Governance Council elects three representatives and three alternates who sit on the statewide UW Colleges Senate.
