Mission

The Mission of the Student Government of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is to;

"actively seek the voices of LSA students and advocate their interests to improve academic and non-academic life,"  

- LSA Student Government Constitution, Article II
 
 
How does LSA SG accomplish this Mission?
LSA Student Government works to accomplish this mission through a variety of methods, namely working with College and University Administration, as well as student organizations, to better the Michigan Experience for students. LSA Student Government also plans its own events, such as Taste of Michigan, and also co-sponsors events with other student organizations that will benefit the students of LSA.
 
However, most of LSA Student Government's methods of meeting this mission can be best summed up by the following four points:
 

1. Changing Policy: LSA SG seeks to provide a continuous role for LSA students in College policy and decision making when student interests are involved.
For example: LSA SG has lobbied on behalf of student interest on such issues as setting a precedent of exam-free election days.

2. Improving Well-Being: LSA SG works to improve the quality of both academic and non-academic life for the students of LSA.
For example: LSA SG hosts a Stress Free Diag Day during exam weeks offering free items and services including Green Books, food, and professional massages.

3. Protecting Rights: LSA SG protects the rights of LSA students.
For example: LSA SG advocated on behalf of a Gender-Neutral Housing option.

4. Representing Students: LSA SG serves as the representative voice of LSA students pertaining to academics and their general welfare both on and around campus, and appoints students to serve on a variety of College and University committees.
For example: LSA SG worked with administration to create the International Studies Minor due to growing demand from LSA students.
