Student Government Structure
The fundamental structure of USG was established with the first USG Constitution in April 1971. USG is headed by an Executive Branch consisting of students elected each spring by the undergraduate student body. A Senate elected at the same time serves as the Legislative body of USG. These elected officers also serve as the Board of Directors for the United Students Government Service Group, Inc. The Judicial Council is appointed to settle disputes or clarify issues that arise.
The United Students Government Senate meets every Tuesday evening during the fall and spring semesters, excluding holidays. The meetings are held in the Bulger Communication Center West and begin at 8:45pm. All activity fee paying undergraduate students at Buffalo State and other interested parties are welcome to attend. Anyone who wishes to speak at a Senate meeting should contact the USG President in advance and ask to be put on the agenda.
Other open USG meetings include Mandatory Organizations Meetings (held twice each semester) and various committee meetings such as the Food Services Committee and the Game Room Committee. These meetings are announced on the Bengal Connect web site and can be found on the calendar there.
