We are the Georgetown University Student Association, and since 1984 our mission has been to serve students on the Hilltop as they pursue theirs. We’re recognized as the official voice of students to the University administration and the greater community, and we take that responsibility seriously.
We believe that students have a right and a responsibility to play a role in the governance of Georgetown. To this end, we are a democratic student government that works to resolve common student problems, advocate for the inclusion of students in University processes, and make student life at Georgetown the best it can be.
GUSA is led by the Executive, which consists of a president, a vice president, and about 40 cabinet and staff members. The Senate is the legislative branch, powered by 28 senators and a handful of staff. Many other students are involved with GUSA as members of various committees, working groups, and commissions.
Every Georgetown student is a member of GUSA, and we invite all students to join us. There are dozens of opportunities to get involved. Run for the GUSA Senate, apply to one of our many committees, or simply let us know what you think!
