The mission of The George Washington University Student Association is to further the interests and promote the welfare of all students at GW. Our responsibilities are defined in four ways: to advocate, allocate, advertise, and assist.
Made up of three distinct branches, the Student Association at The George Washington University serves as the main student governing body, representing more than 26,000 undergraduate and graduate students across the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses.
Chaired by Vice President Kate Carpenter, the SA Senate is composed of 17 undergraduate and 19 graduate student senators. Senators draft bills and resolutions, allocate money to student organizations, and work on policy projects.
The Student Court settles all disputes between parties within the Student Association. Comprised of five judges that are appointed by the president and approved by the Senate, Judges are representative of both the undergraduate and graduate student bodies.
