UH SGA University of Houston Student Government Association (SGA) The Student Government Association exists to represent the interest of the students by serving as a liaison between the University and community.

Students are our top priority and we are always working on a variety of issues aimed at enhancing campus life and improving the student experience. From student services to food services; from academic issues to safety concerns, what ever your issue may be, SGA has a solution for you. Each student is represented in SGA by student senators according to their academic college. We encourage you all to meet with your Senators through our SGA town halls as well as through our bi-weekly SGA meetings. Both venues present an opportunity to express any concerns that you might have, and to learn what SGA is working on. In addition feel free to visit our offices to speak with us; our doors are always open. We are located in the Student Center North Building, Second Floor, Room 220.

Mission: The Student Government Association exists to serve as the official voice through which student opinion may be expressed and empowered in the overall policy, decision making process, and services offered at the University of Houston. As such, the Student Government Association is committed to understanding the needs of students and advocating on their behalf. Through continuous interaction with students, faculty, staff, and administration, the organization works to improve and enhance the quality of the student experience.

Houston Youth Voters Conference

Houston Youth Voters Conference

Are you an eligible voter? Do you know eligible voters? If yes - and chances are the answer to one of those questions is yes - you should come to this webinar! You’ll get to hear about all of the ways you can vote safely in Harris County during the COVID-19 pandemic (think: drive-thru voting & 24-hour voting). Best of all, you’ll hear this information straight from the source, Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins, and get the chance to participate in a Q&A with him. Then, you’ll get to discuss Texas’ response to voting policies in the COVID-19 pandemic with Reclaim Our Vote and to phonebank young voters and encourage them to GOTV - safely!

“As the student government of one of the most diverse universities in the nation, the UH SGA is pained by the murder of Houston native and Third Ward community member, George Floyd. I am saddened by the addition of his name to my mental list of unarmed brothers and sisters murdered by police across our nation. We have not yet healed from the losses of Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor and countless others. The addition of George Floyd sheds a light on a pandemic that has ravaged our nation since its creation -systemic racism. As UH Student Body President I am dedicated to the UH SGA’s representation of all students and consider silence on this issue an injustice to the student body. In honor of George Floyd this statement will serve as a call to action for all University of Houston students, faculty and administration to stand in solidarity with the Black members of our community against police brutality and systemic racism. I call on each and every one of you to use your voice and stand up against racism within yourselves, your families and your community. I call on all of you to demand change, hold your elected officials accountable and demand justice for Black lives. United we grieve George Floyd and united we will fight for change.”

-Jasmine Khademakbari, Student Body President

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
