The mission of the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee Student Government is to support our students through Activities, Services, Advocacy, Leadership, and School Pride. We work to maximize every student’s experience.
Who We Are
The Student Government Association at USF Sarasota-Manatee gives students the chance to assume a leadership role on campus and to participate in the planning and implementation of major campus events. Leadership and team-building are stressed to help prepare students for the future in whatever career they choose to pursue.
The Executive Branch is responsible for being the face of the Student Government Association. They represent the Student Body relating to administration, government, and the public. The Branch shall hold regular meetings in order to address policies and procedures of the Executive Branch and allow for a dialogue between the branches of Student Government.
The Legislative Branch is comprised of elected officials and hired members, here to represent the students on our campus. They supply clubs with additional funding, sponsor legislative bills, and even have a checkout program so students can check out video games and partake in other campus activities. They are here for YOU!
The Judicial Branch is in charge of being able to make decisions that are fair and just! They have their signature program known as the Do's and Donuts program which is a question and answer based system that currently educates students on parking services, the graduation process, OrgSync, financial aid FAQ's and more. They also work closely with other branches to ensure that if something goes completely wrong regarding the constitution or if any questioning is involved they have a committee that is in charge of delegating over the situation.
