Undergraduate Student Government

Since 1924, the Undergraduate Student Government has served as the representative organization of the undergraduate students of Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. In addition to advocating for the student body, USG provides services, programs and resources to the undergraduate university community.  

The Undergraduate Student Government's purpose is to provide for the common betterment and general welfare of the undergraduate student body and the university and to insure meaningful student participation in total university governance. USG is the primary vehicle by which the undergraduate student body provides its input into the university community. 

Twenty-five officials, each elected in the spring semester to serve a one-year term, consist of the make-up of USG. Overseen by the Student Body President, eight directors cover specific areas of student life, and sixteen senators represent the degree granting colleges, commuter and off-campus students, residence hall students, university college, and other important university demographics of students.
