Mission and Vision

Student Government’s mission is to represent the interests of the student body through the implementation of innovative programs, services, and initiatives that enrich student lives.


We will be the primary source of advocacy for students from RIT and utilize our shared governance structure to voice student opinions and concerns. RIT Student Government will be at the forefront of change within the university. SG’s vision is to be the premier student government in the nation.

Student government organizational chart


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.

Limited documentation about functions, missing cables and components, and fewer technical people from the company to provide service support were just a few of the barriers Van Camp encountered as he began.
