The Undergraduate Student Government prides itself on its tagline "Students First." Given a grant of power from Student Affairs, the USG is charged with representing student interests to the entire University and community. Additionally, the USG supports, guides, and provides funding for more than 170 student organizations recognized on campus.
Each representative in USG is elected by one of five constituencies to one of the following caucuses: First Year, Case School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, or Weatherhead School of Management. Throughout the year, representatives meet and discuss issues pertinent to the student experience in that particular constituency.
Additionally, each member chooses to serve on one of the following committees: Student Life, Finance, Academic Affairs, Public Relations, and Information Technology. The Committees, headed by Vice Presidents elected by the entire student body, meet with administrators regularly and work to come up with solutions to student issues and to advocate for student interest. The Finance Committee is specifically charged with reviewing requests and distributing the Student Activities Fee to student organizations.
Finally, each representative in the Undergraduate Student Government has a seat in the General Assembly that meets every other Tuesday at 7PM in the Toepfer Room of Adelbert Hall. The General Assembly convenes to discuss student issues at hand and to pass legislation that proposes changes to the administration.
All USG meetings are open to the entire community and we also welcome At-Large Members who can serve as non-voting members for any of the duties described above.
