About SGA

Florida International University’s Student Government Association was established in 1973 and since its inception has continued to strive for excellence on behalf of all Panthers. In order to better represent all students, FIU SGA is divided into two councils – SGC-MMC, which represents the interests of students at the Modesto A. Maidique Campus and the Engineering Center and SGC-BBC, which represents the interests of students at the Biscayne Bay Campus and FIU at I-75. In coherence with the idea of checks and balances, SGA is divided into the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches.

Together, SGA exists to represent students and act in their best interests on academic, extracurricular and social issues. Throughout the year, our advocacy efforts extend further than the perimeter of our campus, engaging local, state, and federal officials to help us accomplish our goals.

  • Mission
    The Student Government Association’s mission is to serve and empower Florida International University’s student community by identifying, addressing, advocating and communicating students’ needs, concerns and interests.
  • Purpose

    The purpose of Student Government includes (but is not limited to) the following: 

    • Allocation of the Activity & Service Fee 
    • To provide official voice and action on behalf of the student body 
    • Ensure that students' concerns are addressed in governance and policy development of Florida International University at all levels 
    • Evaluate and establish student programs and services
