Student Body Government
Gallaudet University’s Student Body Government provides thoughtful input into Gallaudet’s decision-making process, has three main tasks as we fulfill our charge to serve as the representative voice and the GU student body.
USA’s purpose is to provide input into the University’s decision-making process; to act as a spokesperson for the students; and to maintain communications concerning students’ interests and concerns in all of the university’s schools and colleges.
HUSA includes within its domain:
The entire student body
The legislative branch, consisting of representatives from clubs, organizations, and classes;
The judicial branch, responsible for interpreting and upholding the Student Body Government constitution;
The executive branch, which includes the SBG President and Vice President, and their staff.
The Student Body Government is the primary organization through which students govern themselves, plan activities for the campus, and work with the faculty and administration.
With the Student Congress’ approval, the Student Body Government President and Vice President appoint directors for academic, social, and cultural affairs, student welfare, athletics, and student media.
All undergraduate and graduate students are considered active, voting members of the student body. The executive officers are selected annually in a campus-wide election.
