About Us

LSA SG is a student run organization that represents the Student Body of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. LSA SG is part of a network of other governing bodies at the University of Michigan including the Central Student Government (CSG), Rackham Student Government, and the Engineering Student Government (ESG).

Our weekly General Meetings, where we hear guest speakers, vote on resolutions, and review committee reports, are open to the LSA student body. They take place every Wednesday at 8:00 PM via Zoom.

How does LSA SG function?

LSA SG is composed of a network of student representatives and committees designed to serve specific student interests, as structured in our governing documents

The different committees each have tasks and goals to consider at their own meetings. Weekly General Meetings are held wherein all members convene to update one another on the happenings of their committees, hear from guest speakers, discuss and vote on resolutions, and provide representative reports. 

Constituents: All students of the College of LSA.

Associate Representatives: Any constituents who attend three consecutive General Meetings are given this title and granted speaking rights during General Meetings. Their individual biographies are available on the People Page of this website. This is a great first step into getting involved with LSA SG!

Appointed Representatives:  Members of LSA SG internally selected to fill vacancies of Elected Representatives. Their appointments last for a maximum of one semester. Their individual biographies are available on the People Page of this website.

Elected Representatives: Members of LSA SG voted into office by LSA students during either the fall or winter semester elections who each represent a portion of the Student Body of LSA, similar to a House Representative of the U.S. Government. Their individual biographies are available on the People Page of this website.

Executive Board: With the exception of the President and Vice-President, who are voted in by LSA constituents, these members are nominated by the President and then approved by the representatives of LSA SG. The Treasurer, Secretary, Counsel, External Relations Officer, Academic Relations Officer, and Student Life Relations Officer have specific responsibilities and roles to assure everything runs smoothly within LSA SG. Their individual biographies are available on the People Page of this website.

Committees: LSA SG is divided into twelve committees which each focus on different aspects of Student Life. All committee information including details on Chairs and Vice-Chairs, meeting times and dates, current projects, and descriptions can be found on the Committees Page of this website.
