How to Jump-Start My Student Government

Is your SG struggling? Are you having trouble recruiting members? Are you unsure of what your role is on campus? If so, you're not alone.

FACT 1:
Many Student Governments, no matter the size or type of institution, are either dormant or are struggling badly, marred by low attendance in boring meetings, poor participation in elections by voters and candidates, and a lack of real purpose beyond throwing parties, impeaching each other, and spending student fee money.

FACT 2:
Most students don’t care about their Student Government. Many don’t even know they have a Student Government on campus.

It’s time to reboot and start fresh with a new plan to make your SG more effective and successful.
