Wondering where you'd best fit in? Here's an overview of each type of committee and how they're run.
- Student-led, student-run
- Advocacy committees are the primary way for students to organize and create change within the student body. These committees are organized by the sitting members, report to the SGA President, and provide their insight and advice to the Student Senate and various University departments.
- While each committee has a limited number of seats, once a month, the committee will hold a public meeting to open the floor to all UNT students.
- This is the primary way for students with no SGA experience to get involved.
- University-led, student-run
- University-Wide committees are a combination of students and various UNT entities. These committees report to their respected office, department, or entity, but are primarily dictated and run by students.
- No previous SGA experience is required.
- University-led, student supported
- Departmental committees are primarily governed directly by various UNT entities. These committees are often a coalition of faculty, staff, administrators, and students.
- Students with previous SGA experience are prioritized as those selected for Departmental committees represent the Student Government Association on an institutional level.
