Cameron University's Student Government Association is an organization that represents the concerns and ideas of the student body. The purpose of SGA is to represent, lead, and unify. Student Government aids the university in its large purpose of education, makes recommendations to the administration of the University regarding student issues and concerns, and encourages enthusiastic school support. SGA is not just a club, it is for all students. Members of SGA are students who are elected each fall and spring to be responsive to the needs and wishes of the student body of Cameron University.

The Student Government Association consists of elected Senators, Senators designated by recognized student organizations, the Executive Council, and Constitutional Committees. There are eight elected senators from each of the University's academic schools. Within the schools, each classification has two senatorial positions. Graduate students have the option of running for any upperclassman position. The elected officers consist of the President, Vice President, and Treasurer. All Senator elections are held by general election in the Spring semester, with the exception of freshman elections, which are held during the Fall semester. Special Elections may be called at the discretion of the President of Student Government. There are two constitutional committees: the Finance Committee and the Election Committee.

If students cannot commit the time to be active in the SGA, the officers still want them to come to the meetings or stop by the SGA Office in the McMahon Centennial Complex. Students who choose not to participate in SGA are encouraged to voice their opinions by voting in SGA elections.
