RIT Student Government is the governance group representing and serving students at RIT. SG is one of three groups that together contribute members to University Council. SG’s counterparts are Staff Council, which represents RIT’s staff, and Academic Senate, which represents RIT’s faculty.
University Council directly advises the President, who makes all final decisions. The President is accountable to the Board of Trustees, which has final responsibility for the university.
Internally, Student Government is composed of an executive branch and a senate. The President, who is the head of the executive branch, is elected by the student body each spring. Following the elections, the President appoints members of the executive (also known as the cabinet), which are then approved by the Senate.
