Student Government's Mission

Notre Dame Student Government is an established part of the Student Union that strives to amplify student voices, plan and promote student development initiatives, and better campus life through policy and programming. People from all corners of campus are welcomed members of Student Government as we strive to represent every person.

Student Government also serves to help the Fighting Irish discover their passions, whether it be connecting with the local community or engaging with a national issue. We want to encourage every student to get involved, whether it’s your first time with Student Government or your fourth. Experience is good, but passion is what drives us and what motivates us to better our campus community. If you have an idea or concern, please do not hesitate to contact us – we are here to support and guide you!

The Notre Dame Student Union has many branches, including Executive Cabinet (and the Department under each Director), Student Senate, Student Union Board, Judicial Council, Class Councils, Hall Presidents Council, Off Campus Council, and Club Coordination Council. For more information on the individual branches, please reference the links below.
