The University of Kentucky Student Government Association (UKSGA) represents all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students enrolled at the University in several critical ways. UKSGA exists to increase student influence over academic policy and to provide many helpful, creative and necessary student services. UKSGA also exists to protect and expand student substantive and procedural rights with the University and surrounding municipalities. Finally, UKSGA exists to better represent the student body in relations with faculty, administration, Board of Trustees and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
If you’re interested in learning more about UKSGA, how to get involved, or want more information about any of the opportunities below, please contact the Student Government Advisor, found here.
Leadership Development Program
LDP is a freshman program, organized and facilitated by Student Government, dedicated to building future leaders on campus. Participants will learn what it means to become a leader on campus by working with various campus organizations, networking with student leaders and administrators, and exploring their own personal growth as a leader. Students participate in a shadowing program with major student organizations, including SGA, SAB, CCO, and DanceBlue; hear from guest speakers from the University and the local community; participate in service activities, and represent the freshmen class as a focus group of highly-involved future leaders.
