Student Government Association

The Student Government Association at the University of Tennessee Martin is here for you. We want your questions, concerns, and comments so that we may develop this campus to better serve the students.

The Student Government Association would not be here today without the time and effort from our past and present members. We are a student-run organization, and our title is simple: We are a liaison between the students and the administration. We represent every student at UT Martin, Online, and at our Extended Campuses.

Every student matters and contributes to improving all of our branches of student government. You elected the SGA representatives. Now, it is our duty be your voice and provide you with an enjoyable college atmosphere where all the students can grow and prosper.

Our office is located in The Student Life Office in the University Center (UC Room 245), where we have SGA members throughout most of the day. We love UT Martin, and we want you to have the best experience during your time here. Please always feel free to share your concerns, ideas, and suggestions with our administration. The email addresses of the current Executive Officers are listed below.

Feel free to join us at any Senate meeting every other Thursday night at 5:30 P.M. in the Legislative Chambers located in the University Center.
