Student Government Association

The MU student government association provides an opportunity for the expression of student views and interest; all currently enrolled students are members. The governing board, elected representatives of the student body, is designed to assist in providing for students’ social, cultural and physical well-being and to help promote better educational standards. The student government association provides an opportunity for students to participate in the governance of the college. It also affords a means whereby students may gain experience and training through participation in community leadership, for student cooperation and communication with the faculty and administration, and for demonstrating that students may effectively and responsibly govern themselves.
