Student Government

The University of Chicago


Student Government is responsible for allocating approximately $2.2 million in support of student life and student organizations.

On April 20, 2016, the SG Executive Committee announced a budget recommendation for the 2016-2017 academic year. This recommendation consisted of the framework for a budget proposal, which would increase funding for arts groups, academic teams, RSOs, and other student organizations in addition to devoting substantially more funding to graduate students.

SG's 2016-2017 budget was voted upon at the Assembly meeting on May 2 by members of the College Council and Graduate Council. The adopted budget may be seen here, and a memo with information about the proposal that was prepared by the Executive Slate may be seen here
