Student Government Association: Elections

SGA Senators with Dr. Callender

Representing Your School

Our Student Government Association is comprised of student representatives from all five of UTMB's schools. They work for and on behalf of the entire student body. From creating new initiatives on campus to awarding funds to student organizations, our senators help make UTMB a better place to learn, work, and have fun.

Our senate term runs May - April, with special elections in the summer, fall, and winter to ensure incoming students have a chance to represent their cohorts and classmates.
