Chaminade Student Government Association

The Chaminade Student Government Association (CSGA) serves the student community in multiple ways. CSGA is the voice of Chaminade University students and it operates in the best interest of the general student body.

CSGA is responsible for expanding and coordinating student activities. CSGA aims to develop interest and support for educational, social, cultural, and recreational programs, and it stimulates communication within the Chaminade community. You can keep up with all the CSGA news and events by visiting Presence or the University Events Calendar.

CSGA Elections

Each Spring, Chaminade University Undergraduate Students take part in the process of democratically electing the new CSGA Executive Board. As both candidates and voters, students learn how their participation in elections is critical to the success of the University. This process is a microcosm of the larger Representative Democracy of the US, and seeks to empower students to participate in the electoral process by encouraging them to support candidates with whom they share core values and beliefs, or campaigning to, themselves, become an agent of change at the University.

Students interested in becoming a candidate for office should look for more information in the Spring Semester.
