About Us

Student Government is divided into three branches:

  • Executive leads and represents the entire student body to administration while completing projects and initiatives.
  • Legislative represents specific student populations to better the individual student experience.
  • Judicial regulates and educates Student Government to ensure ethical action.

There are also four agencies that operate as part of Student Government:

  • Category 5 (Cat 5) works with UM Athletics and is the spirit programming board of Student Government.
  • ECO builds an environmentally friendly campus through student-led initiatives.
  • Elections Commission coordinates and officiates free and fair Student Government elections.
  • What Matters to U develops and executes events that get students learning outside of the classroom. 

Student Government plans and implements campus-wide initiatives that affect academics, campus life, dining, and so much more. Learn more about what we're up to at our Initiatives page.
