Student Government Association

Welcome to the Western State Colorado University Student Government Association website! Use this website to find our updated Constitution, By-Laws, Minutes, members, and other information about what is happening around campus.

Your Voice Will Be Heard

SGA acts as the official voice of the Associated Student Body and protects the rights and privileges of the student body. Our student government is different than many schools because we represent the voice of the student body, we have control over our own student fees.

As the SGA, we would like to better serve the students, and make sure that all students are involved with the decisions that we make. We want your input and your suggestions. So come to meetings on Wednesdays at 7 pm in the South Conference Room to be heard! If you can't make it to meetings, the SGA website is probably the best resource you'll find. If you have any questions, or are having a hard time getting acquainted with Western and/or our organizations don't hesitate to contact us. We've got an open door culture, so come visit the office in the University Center.
