Who we are

The Student Government Association (SGA) of the University of Georgia is the organized outlet for UGA students to enact change and improve this university. We pride ourselves on being the voice of every Dawg.

We realize how much you commit to UGA when you become a student of this institution. That’s why SGA strives to protect the rights of every student. We are advocates of diversity and inclusion. We recognize that the UGA student experience cannot be defined by a Saturday in Sanford Stadium, nights spent studying in a coffee shop, library or the Miller Learning Center, involvement in one of our hundreds of campus organizations, or even by a degree from our nationally-ranked schools and colleges. Student life at UGA is defined by the 34,000 individuals who bring this campus to life. We believe that no matter where you choose to invest your time at UGA, your opinions on this university should be heard. We believe that your voice matters.
