Promoting the welfare of all students at GW.

The mission of the George Washington University Student Association is to further the interests and promote the welfare of all students at GW. Our responsibilities are defined in four ways: to advocate, allocate, advertise, and assist.

SA Executive Cabinet.

Led by President Peak Sen Chua, the Executive Cabinet is made up of Vice Presidents and Directors. They represent and advocate on behalf of student interests and campus-wide initiatives to move our University forward. Learn more.

Student Association Senate logo

SA Senate.

Chaired by Executive Vice President Sydney Nelson, the SA Senate is composed of 17 undergraduate and 19 graduate student senators. Senators draft bills and resolutions, allocate money to student organizations, and work on policy projects. Learn more.

Advocate for students.

We are first and foremost committed to representing the entire undergraduate and graduate population's interests, whether lobbying for progress like more accessible mental health resources, internship credit, or fall breaks.

Allocate funds to organizations.

We work to ensure student organizations have funding for their programming and operations. The Senate Finance committee is responsible for distributing over $1.7 million to over 500 student organizations on campus.

Advertise campus events.

Every GW student is a member of the Student Association — our network reaches all of GW's more than 25,000 students. We are positioned to support student organizations by advertising and promoting programing and efforts.

Assist students and organizations.

We are students too — students who care about helping you have the best GW experience possible. Check out our resources for Colonials like our Student Organization Resource Center, our peer support program GW Listens, and our petition platform GW Voice.
