Student Government

GMU Student Government 1

George Mason University’s Student Government is a permanent standing entity which receives its legitimacy and authority as representatives of the entire student body. We advocate for the interests of our fellow peers, educate the university community with regard to the state of the institution, and represent the interests of each student. Our mission is to do so through serving as a liaison to the administration, faculty, and community.

GMU Student government, especially the Government and Community Relations committee, and the Students onAir @GMU chapter, are exploring ways to collaborate on the Virginia onAir Hub and the US onAir network of 50 state governance and election hubs.

Our first project is to support livestream debates between Northern Virginia congressional candidates.
