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.
The SGA is led by the Executive Branch and governed by the Student Senate to represent the opinions and viewpoints of all USM students to the administration of USM and the University of Maine system and help formulate positive working relationships between them.
