Committee Applications

Committee applications for the 2016-2017 academic year are now open. One of the ways that Student Government voices student needs across campus is through various committees. There are several standing committees that exist every year, run by Student Government, that oversee the RSO funding process, RSO applications, and annual elections. There are also a number of issue-based committees on the topics of academics, student services, student employment and campus sustainability that will focus specifically on those areas. 

ALL students are encouraged to apply for committee seats -- we are seeking a diverse range of student opinions and perspectives. The deadline for for applications has been extended--applications are now due on Thursday, October 6th by 11:59PM.

Cabinet Applications

We are soliciting applications for the 2016-2017 SG cabinet, which is composed of committee chairs and other administrative support positions. A huge part of the work Student Government does is through committees--funding student organizations, addressing campus-wide issues, and providing valuable resources for the student body. We invite you to get involved in SG by applying to chair a committee. As we work hard to make SG visible, accessible, and issue-oriented, we highly encourage anyone interested in leadership to apply for a chair position. The rest of committee membership will be selected in the fall.

We are also accepting applications for other positions in the SG cabinet, such as Director of Communications or Director of Finance, which help with the administration of SG committees and services.

Links to the individual applications are listed below. Please apply as soon as possible. Cabinet selections are rolling. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
