submitted by floresm9@augsburg.edu

Are you interested in running for Augsburg Day Student Government for the 2019-2020 academic year?

To run, simply download a petition, fill it out, and collect the signatures of 10 Day students. You can turn completed petitions into Campus Life (in the Auggie’s Nest) by Friday, April 5 at 4pm. Frequently asked questions can be found on the petition.

Students would be committing to attending Student Government meetings next year on Wednesday nights from approximately 6-8pm.

Student Government is responsible for:

Advocating and addressing issues and concerns on behalf of the Day Student Body to administrators and the outside community
Recognizing student organizations
Allocating budgets and grants to student organizations
Allocating environmental project grants to those on campus
Suggesting projects for improvement on campus
And more
It’s a great way to get involved on campus, build leadership and advocacy skills, and advocate about issues that concern you. Some things that student government has successfully lobbied for the past several years include but are not limited to:

Bike share program on campus (through the Library)
Free universal bus/light rail pass for all students (starting this fall)
Expanded dietary options in the Commons
Remodel of the Student Lounge
Additional staff support for diversity and inclusion initiatives at the University
Compost bins in the residence hall rooms
Additional accessibility panels on doors
