WHAT IS USG?
The USC Undergraduate Student Government is the official governing body of the nearly 19,000 undergraduates at the University of Southern California. Through extensive advocacy, programming, and funding work, we seek to make a meaningful impact on the undergraduate experience.
The President, the Vice President, and the Senators are popularly elected by the student body in an annual election held in mid-February. The remaining Executive Officers, and members of the Advocacy, Communications, Funding, Judicial, Legislative, and Programming branches, are appointed by a selection committee.
According to the USG Constitution, “all registered undergraduate students at USC shall be members of the Undergraduate Student Government and shall be subject to this Constitution, Bylaws, and Code of Ethics”.
WHAT WE DO
USG seeks to make the undergraduate experience the best it can possibly be. From advocating for policy change on campus, programing educational and entertainment events, passing resolutions to pass on to administration, and funding our students in their various pursuits, each administration does its best to make a positive impact on student life at USC.
HOW WE DO IT
The student government is made up of six branches that work together to define the USC undergraduate experience: Advocacy, Communications, Funding, Judicial, Legislative, and Programming.
