Who We Are:

We, the United Student Government of Point Park University, are created from the ranks of the Student Body of Point Park University to serve as a voice for the many and a communicator with the administration.

 We are formed of two entities: the Executive Cabinet, and the singular Legislative Body. The Executive Cabinet consists of six members with the President and Vice President being elected by the student body, and the Treasurer, Recording Secretary, Communications Director, and Parliamentarian each being appointed by the USG President. This Cabinet oversees daily operations, and faithfully executes the terms of the Constitution and By-Laws. The Legislative Body is comprised of students elected to serve by their respective schools/constituencies whose duties are outlined in the Construction and By-Laws.

 Together, we act as an organizational resource for students and clubs by ensuring our rights and privileges within the academic community.
