Student involvement and participation in the governance of the University of the Virgin Islands are provided through representation on the UVI Board of Trustees, membership on the UVI Senate, election/appointment to the Student Government Association (SGA) and membership on UVI standing committees. Student assignment to UVI standing committees and SGA standing committees are done through the SGA.
The SGA is continually growing as a viable part of University life. SGA is concerned with improving the quality of student life through its many communication channels. SGA is recognized as the official representative of the student body and assists students by:
- Providing opportunities for each student to participate in activities which develop and realize individual potentialities and leadership skills.
- Aiding in a meaningful interpretation of the concept of the “University Community”.
All students who have paid the $20.00 Student Government Association fee are automatically members of the SGA. The Student Government Association’s governing body consists of the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch. The Executive Branch is composed of the Executive Body and the Executive Cabinet. The Student Council comprises the Legislative Branch.
