Since 1924, the Undergraduate Student Government has served as the sovereign representative organization of the students of Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. In addition to advocating for the student body, USG provides vital services to the university community, that you can check out in the services tab!
Twenty-five officials, each elected in the spring semester to serve a one-year term, consist of the make-up of USG. Overseen by the Student Body President, eight directors cover specific areas of student life, and sixteen senators represent the degree granting colleges, commuter and off-campus students, residence hall students, university college, and other important university demographics of students.
The Undergraduate Student Government is the direct line of communication to university administration, funneling problems and issues in university life that directly affect our undergraduate student population. USG's main goal is to be the voice of the students and always put students first!
We exist by the decree of the board of trustees. Being a chartered organization allows us to define and secure our rights and status in the university community, and in order to provide for the common betterment and general welfare of the undergraduate student body and the university and to insure meaningful student participation in total university governance, is why the Kent State USG exists.
