The student-led governing bodies at different institutions may vary according to their size, structure, and authority.
The Student Government Association (SGA) at Midwestern State University is composed of the Student Body, which is the total of all active / registered students. Therefore, each student is automatically a member of the Student Government Association, and has the right to attend meetings. In order to write and submit resolutions and bills, and be voted or approved into Student Government positions one must be a registered Senator for an organization on campus.
Within the Student Government lies the Student Senate, where all of the action takes place. Please note that not every student is automatically in the Student Senate. The Student Senate is composed of Student Senators and the Student Government Executive Board (the President, Vice President of the Student Body, and Secretary of the Student Body). This means that although the Student Body has all of the rights listed above, in order to be able to vote on resolutions and bills, a student must be a member of the Student Senate; in other words, the student must be a Senator.
There are two types of Senators: Organization Senators and Class Senators. Each official campus organization or club has one senator, and each class (i.e. Freshman, Sophomore, etc.) has two senators. Organization Senators represent their respective organization (for example, the Organization of Hispanic Students will choose one of their members to serve as their representative in the Student Senate), while Class Senators campaign for the position to represent their class in the Senate, and are voted in by their peers (the people in their respective academic class year).
If your organization has selective membership, please describe the selection process.
The Executive Officers are selected by the Student Body by way of majority vote during the Annual SGA Office Elections in March.
Each Organization Senator is selected by the organization (not by the the Executive Office), and Class Senators are selected by their peers.
