Welcome to SGA

Welcome to the home of USD's Student Government Association. As the liaison between students, administration, faculty and the South Dakota Board of Regents, SGA strives to enhance communication, understanding and cooperation throughout the University. We strive for academic, social, and community development to promote the best interests of students and the entire University community.

SGA is charged with allocating money to student organizations each year to provide cultural, recreational, educational and social opportunities outside of the classroom. We are proud to sponsor so many enriching programs and to encourage constructive discourse. Please look around our website to learn about all the opportunities to be involved with SGA.
