Student Government (United Students Government)
Campbell Student Union 402
The United Students Government (USG) has represented Buffalo State students since 1971. USG is headed by students who are elected each year by the undergraduate student body, is maintained with the support of a professional staff, and is funded through the mandatory student activity fee. In addition to the operational activities of student government, USG supports over 40 funded and recognized student organizations, each providing general and specialized events and activities for students with diverse interests.
USG consists of three operating branches of governance: the executive branch, responsible for establishing long-term goals for student government; the senate, the legislative branch of USG; and the judicial council. All undergraduate students are members of USG and are eligible to run for any elected position for which they are qualified. Senate meetings are held every Tuesday night during the academic year at 8:45 p.m. in Bulger Communication Center and are open to the general student body.
