The purpose of the Student Governing Association is to help students voice concerns, suggestions, or grievances. Every student is a member of SGA and is represented by a college council (elected by the students in each respective college), a student senator, and by the student body president and vice president. The student senators, student body president, and vice president are elected by the K-State student body.
SGA is divided into three branches: legislative, judicial, and executive. Student Senate makes up the legislative branch. It is composed of six standing committees: academic affairs/university relations, allocations, governmental relations, privilege fee, senate operations, and student affairs/social services.
The judicial branch is composed of the judicial council, student review board, student tribunal, parking citations appeals board, and the housing and dining services judicial boards.
The student body president, vice president, and cabinet make up the executive branch. The president has the responsibility to promote the general welfare of the students and acts as the official voice of the student body to the faculty, administration, and public.
Any organization desiring to become a registered organization must register with the Office of Student Activities and Services. Registered groups have the opportunity to request funds from SGA, have fundraising activities on campus, and may schedule rooms and tables in the K-State Student Union as well as most campus facilities. Registered student organizations may also post notices in university buildings and on campus bulletin boards.
