Shared Governance: Undergraduate Student Body Government (SBG)

Updated February, 2016

Back to List of Governance Bodies and Committees


The Student Body Government (SBG) is the major organization through which Gallaudet students govern themselves, plan activities for the campus, and work with faculty and administration on matters of general interest to the student body.

This Committee has the following authority:

  • Appoints directors for academic, social, and cultural affairs; student welfare; athletics; and student media (SBG's president, with approval of the Student Congress)


Students automatically become members of the SBG. Undergraduate and graduate students are active, voting members. SBG's executive officers are chosen annually in a campus-wide election.
