Apply for a policy COALITION
Each of GUSA's Policy Coalitions focuses on advocacy for a specific campus issue. There are 24 different policy coalitions, each focusing on a different campus issue. To learn more or to get more involved with a specific policy coalition, visit the policy coalition page here.
Executive Positions include a Cabinet, Communications Team, Affordability Research and Development Team, the GUSA Fund, as well as student representative positions on the Board of Directors and Alumni Board of Governors.
RUN FOR THE SENATE
The GUSA Senate is responsible for allocating money to student organizations, voting on resolutions, representing general student interests, and working closely with GUSA Policy Teams in a variety of ways. Senators are elected geographically, with each district containing one or multiple residence halls.
Senate elections take place at the beginning of the fall semester. You can find detailed election rules here. For questions about running for the Senate, please reach out directly to the Election Commission at email@example.com.
