About Student Government

NOTE: Site is still under construction!

Student Government exists for you, the students. As an undergraduate student, you pay a "Student Activity Fee" based on the number of credit hours you take here at USM. The SGA is a steward of the fund and is tasked with making sure it is equitably and responsibly distributed to help foster community and to enhance student's extracurricular activities. Please feel free to reach out to any SGA member or entity for any help. We work for you!

The Student Government Association (SGA) at USM is the parent organization that governs all Student Groups , campus media organizations, the Student Senate, and beyond at the University of Southern Maine.

The SGA is led by the Student Body President and governed by the Student Senate to represent the opinions and viewpoints of all students to the administration of USM and the University of Maine system.

The Student Government Association is charged with disbursing the Student Activity Fee paid by each of USM's 7300 undergraduate students - approximately $500,000 each year - to events and activities that YOU want to be a part of!
