The executive board of the University Students Association (UGCSA) is comprised of members representing each UGC faculty. The operations of UGCSA and its executive board are guided by a constitution, which is the supreme authority governing student affairs at UGC and binding the UGCSA, subordinate student structures, as well as all registered students.
The UGCSA represents students in all matters and strives to uphold a just standard of governance to ensure the welfare of all students. It facilitates communication between students and other stakeholders within the University and the higher education sector. Currently, the UGCSA is represented in several university-wide committees, including the Board of Trustees and the academic decision making body, the Senate.
