Our Mission

The Illinois Student Government is the officially recognized system of student governance at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Our mission is to "advance the collective interest and safeguarding the rights of the students; maintain the quality of life, education, employment, research, and services at the institution; and provide for the awareness and general welfare of the campus and community."

The Illinois Student Government is made up of graduate and undergraduate students elected to represent students at the University. Student Government sponsors initiatives that address pressing issues on campus, from the sexual assault policy to racial tensions on campus. Student Government seeks to play a role in all aspects of University life, from housing and diversity to funding and dining.

Register to Vote:

The ISG believes in the principle of a strong and fair democracy. College campuses generally have low voter turnout rates, but the ISG is aiming to change that statistic. All eligible voters are encouraged to register and vote in the upcoming local, state, and federal elections. Eligible voters with an Illinois voter registration who live in another state can request a mail-in ballot. Casting a ballot for the first has never been easier; for most people, the process involves filling out an online form and possibly dropping off a document at the local post office.
