Student Government

Student government assumes an important role at each campus. The Student Government Association (SGA) at the Chicago campus and Student Government at the Schaumburg campus represent the voice for student needs, concerns and opinions. The organizations are lead by elected officers and members include senators as well as representatives from student organizations.

Both student government organizations are responsible for appointing students to University-wide committees, such as the Student Review Board, the Bookstore Advisory Committee, University Senate, and other important decision-making groups. In addition, a student from each campus is selected each year to serve on the Board of Trustees. Contact the Schaumburg Student Government at and the Chicago SGA at
