Student Government Association

FIU SGA represents the interests of students at the Modesto A. Maidique Campus, Biscayne Bay Campus, Engineering Center, and FIU at I-75. In coherence with the idea of checks and balances, SGA is divided into the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches.

Together, SGA exists to represent students and act in their best interests on academic, extracurricular and social issues. Throughout the year, our advocacy efforts extend further than the perimeter of our campus,  engaging local, state, and federal officials to help us accomplish our goals.
