Executive Branch Members
The Executive Branch of the Student Government is composed of the Student Body President, Student Body Vice President, Student Body Vice President for Finance, Student Body Vice President for Organizations, the Undergraduate Student Senate Chair, and the Graduate Student Assembly President.
