Join USG

How you can join

The Undergraduate Student Government is an integral part of the Mines community, ensuring that student voices are heard loud and clear. As student representatives, we attend committee meetings, such as Parking, Food, and Public Safety, to give constructive feedback in those areas. In addition, USG votes on resolutions that typically involve fees or large changes on campus.

All representatives hold their position for one academic year, and elections for the following year run in the Spring semester. Freshmen positions open during the first weeks of the Fall semester. All positions are up for grabs during the election season except for Secretary, Parliamentarian, and Treasurer. For more information regarding elections in the Spring, check back here around March/April.

For more information on positions and their roles within USG, head over to our About Us page or check out the Bylaws over at Governing Documents. (You can also find the link in the menu bar)
