Your Participation Counts
The Student Assembly (SA) is the legislative branch of UGBC, and consists of 35 elected senators representing each class, school, and student organization cohort (category), as well as the AHANA Leadership Council (ALC) and the GLBTQ Leadership Council (GLC). The SA focuses primarily on student advocacy and policy work: it is the job of the SA to voice student concerns and work to implement new policies that benefit the student body.
The SA contains seven standing committees that focus on particular policy areas. Both senators and ex-officio (unelected) members serve on these committees. For the 2017-2018 academic year, three of the standing committees will serve as joint committees with Student Initiatives (SI), and will work to develop both policy and programming initiatives that benefit the student body.

Student Assembly Mission Statement & Standing Rules
We represent and serve the interests of the undergraduate student body at Boston College and act as the voice of this body in the Boston College Community. We strive to accurately represent the needs of the undergraduate student body, and facilitate strong associations between undergraduate students and the Boston College Community by acting as advocates for the student voice and involvement, and by serving as liaisons between students and the Boston College Administration.
We provide undergraduate students with advocacy, educational, cultural, and social experiences and opportunities that are not necessarily available in the traditional classroom environment. The programs, events, information, and networking opportunities we provide enrich the experience of being a student at Boston College. We promote the availability of these experiences by providing guidance and resources to the entire undergraduate student population.
The Student Assembly of the Undergraduate Government of Boston College works to provide opportunities to students that positively impact their experiences as students at Boston College. In accomplishing this goal, we are cognizant of the source of our funding and act to benefit the student body with the most efficient and effective allocation of their resources.
