The Student Government Association is a representative body modeled after the United States government. Through its three branches, Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, the Student Government Association aims to represent student issues and concerns at all levels of University decision making. Through a $19 million dollar budget acquired from student fees, SGA maintains hundreds of student jobs, oversees two facilities (Student Union and Rec & Wellness Center), and is constantly creating new services and initiatives aiming to make campus life better for all UCF Knights.
In addition to implementing new services, perhaps SGA's most vital role is the protection of student interests in both the UCF administration's decisions as well as decisions made at the state level. Through governmental affairs divisions, committees, and professional lobbying firms, SGA ensures that the student voice is not only heard but taken seriously.
