About Us

Who are we?

Founded in 1915, the University of Mary Washington Student Government Association (UMW SGA) exists to serve students, helping them to have the best collegiate experience as possible.

We are here to represent YOU.

The SGA is your voice to the administration. We’re here to remind you that your voice matters more than ever. We are a forum where students bring their concerns about campus issues ranging from academics to safety. We address local, state, and national issues which affect students while working together to bond the UMW community.

It’s the question we’re all asking. Will you lead?

Students have the opportunity to serve as members or officers of the various branches and committees of the Student Government Association. As the highest elected body on campus, the SGA has the duty of articulating the student voice to the administration and beyond.

From the Executive Cabinet to the Student Senate, from the Diversity and Unity Coordinating Committee to the Honor Council, we represent the entire student body at UMW and then work to find solutions for common problems on campus.
