UW-Sheboygan has a student government and a collegium comprised of faculty, staff and students.
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.
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.
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.
