SGA FAQ's

 

The Texas A&M International University Student Government Association is a student organization that serves as the official voice of the students. The goal is to represent student opinion, provide ​students with University resources and address campus needs while strengthening the bridge between students, faculty, and staff.

If you want to be involved in the decision-making process of some University events, or programs but don't want to participate as an officer, you can become a member of one of our Committees and Departments. We currently have ​4 Committees and 2 Departments​ created to help fulfill the student body's needs and wants. The Committees and Departments are the following:

  • Traditions Committee:​ Committee in charge of creating and promoting TAMIU Traditions.

  • Political Action Committee (PAC):​ Committee​ ​in charge of promoting civic engagement

    across campus.

  • Leaders Organizing Volunteer Events (L.O.V.E.) Committee:​ Committee in charge of

    promoting service by planning the annual service events of Make a Difference Day and the

    Big Event.

  • Diversity and Inclusivity Committee:​ Committee in charge of celebrating our differences and

    promoting the less represented groups on campus.

  • Public Relations Department: ​Committee in charge of promoting the activities and events

    created by the Student Government Association.

  • Finance Department​: Committee in charge of the Student Government Association's Budget

    and grants given to the Student Organizations.

As a TAMIU student, you are automatically a member of the Student Government Association (SGA). However, if you are a student that is looking to represent and advocate for the student body, we encourage you to join the team and become an SGA Officer. Because we work like a government, there are two ways to become an officer: ​you can get elected or appointed.

Elections​ occur every year at the end of the Spring Semester. ​Appointments​ work differently. The Student Body President can appoint you to the Executive Board as a Director or the Chief of Staff, or you can be appointed by applying through Trailblazers. Although our applications closed last week, ​you can get appointed by one of our Senators​ and in accordance to our vacancies.

Some of the many events that the SGA is involved with and/or organizes are:

  • The BIG Event

  • Make a Difference Day

  • Halloween Fest’s Haunted House

  • Shopping Cart Parade and Decorating Party

  • Maroon Monday

  • SGA Promo Week

  • Freshman Revolution Week
