Student Government Association
The Student Government Association is a representative governance body comprised of current undergraduate students, acting as a coordinating committee pursuing initiatives for the betterment of St. Thomas University. It is responsible for maintaining communication between the students, faculty, staff and administration by providing the student body with a means to deal with the affairs of students and as a forum for the expression of student views concerning student life within the University. It will coordinate activities that may impact the entire community, and help create a learning environment inside and outside the classroom that increases the chances that students will succeed at St. Thomas University. All officers in the Student Government Association must maintain a GPA of 3.0 and must be in good standing with the Academic and Student Code of Conduct.

The Student Senate is the legislative body of the SGA. It is composed of students who are passionate about the growth and development of the University. We see and feel the areas that need attention at the university, and speak to those that are able to implement positive change.
The Senate’s purpose is to represent the students. We are qualified because we are students and we are connected. We believe that we have an accurate pulse of the issues around campus affecting our diverse student population.
If you have a concern, please contact Katherine Valdes (email: KValdes3@STU.EDU so we can set up a meeting.
