On behalf of the University of Tennessee’s Student Government Association (SGA), Student Body President, Mark Hancock, Student Body Vice President, Lindsey Campbell, Student Services Director, Josie Drumwright, and Executive Treasurer, Mary Hajdik would like to thank you for visiting our website.
The Student Government Association’s Student Senate is a governing body of 60 undergraduate students that represent the interests and well-being of all students at the University of Tennessee. Each academic college and residency classification is represented through senators elected by their fellow students in the annual Student Government Association elections, which are held each spring.
First-Year Leadership Council
First Year Leadership Council is an introductory program designed to get incoming first-year students involved on campus. Throughout the year, the FYLC program is designed to introduce 60 first-years to UT with a leadership development-focused program by engaging them with different aspects of SGA and its role in the broader UT community.
Student Services is best characterized as the programming and policymaking branch of SGA. Students involved in a committee will have the opportunity to plan and carry out events that bring awareness to issues facing campus. Students will also have the chance to be actively involved in researching and proposing policy to the senate and to the UT administration. Committees are able to coordinate and implement their agendas to improve campus and the Knoxville community with biweekly meetings. Take an opportunity to look over the committees and see which one is the best fit for you.
