The Student Government Association is structured like the United States Government, with three branches of government. Each branch has main responsibilities, but they often work together to better student life.
- The Executive’s major focus is representing the general student body and work directly with the Administration on campus policy initiatives. The Executive is also in charge of approving new RSO’s and signing off on any RSO account transfers.
- The Senate is mainly in charge of the $2 million Student Activities Trust Fund (SATF), which is allocated to all UMass RSO’s and SGA Agencies like student Bridges and the Student Legal Services Office.
- The Judiciary acts as the Supreme Court of the SGA. It is great experience for students, but is also a great resource for holding SGA officers accountable.
