Mission & History

The University of Florida Student Government was established in 1909 and has continued to strive for excellence on the behalf of Gators for more than a century. Hundreds of remarkable men and women have contributed to this body throughout its rich history including state legislators, cabinet members, governors, supreme court justices, congressmen, noted authors, professional athletes, scientists, CEOs, inventors and so many more.

SG exists to represent students and act in their best interests on academic, extracurricular and social issues. The organization advocates for students at the local, state and federal levels throughout the entire year. Through the three branches of government: Executive, Legislative and Judicial, SG is steadfast in its goal to sustain a stable, well-rounded and affordable learning environment for students to grow as individuals and representations of the Gator Nation.
