It consists of students who ought to serve the student body by promoting the common good in the principle of subsidiarity. The USG serves as a channel of communication between students and the administration as well as between students and the other sectors of the school. The student-representative body organizes and oversees official student activities in promoting student involvement and empowerment. It also aims to establish external linkages with different sectors of society.
Being part of student government means not only representing the study body’s interests to school authorities, but also requires a willingness to think broadly, i.e., “to think University”–not just to represent a narrow perspective.
The University Student Government Constitution crafted by student representatives was ratified in August 2012 which creates a structure in electing student officers akin to a parliamentary system.
