SGA Mission

We are the Student Government Association of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and our mission is to help improve the lives and enhance the experiences of students.  We strive to faithfully and truthfully serve and represent students as they pursue their futures.  We exist to represent student interests to a wide variety of audiences, to include the UCCS administration, the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado, the City of Colorado Springs, and the Colorado legislature.  We represent these interests as “the official voice of students” at UCCS.

Additionally, SGA works to investigate and resolve common student concerns, advocate for the inclusion of students in the overall policy and decision-making processes of the university community, promote awareness of the student’s role in the academic community, enhance the quality and scope of education both inside and outside the classroom at the university, and to empower students with leadership and management opportunities. 

We invite you to join us. Contribute your unique perspectives, bring your ideas and talents, and make your mark on the lasting legacy of UCCS. Every student is a member of SGA, and there are many opportunities to get involved.

 

Structure

The Student Government Association is comprised of three branches of governance: executive, legislative, and judicial.  The individuals who volunteer to fulfill the positions within these branches come from every corner of campus; they’re charged with establishing SGA’s official position on a variety of issues as well as advocating for and carrying out its objectives. This organization creates, implements, and oversees a $350,000 budget that is generated by the student activity fee.
