Our Mission

The Chapman University Student Government Association is dedicated to making positive change on Chapman’s campus and amplifying the student voice. Our job is to advocate for students' needs and concerns to improve every aspect of the college experience. In our endeavours, we are always looking for student input and opinions. We encourage you to come to our Senate meetings every Friday from 1:00-3:00pm and follow us on our instagram: @chapmansga to stay up to date with all things SGA.  


The Chapman University Student Government Association is comprised of the following categories: Executive Council, 17 Senators, and a Judicial Branch. Each position maintains, upholds, and advocates for a certain aspect, organization, or school on our campus. Click below to learn more.

Organizational Structure

View the organizational structure for Chapman SGA here.

Operating Documents

Operating documents are the rules in which SGA follows. They explain the structure and responsibilities of all members of SGA and are the basis of the organization's operations. The operating documents are constantly being reviewed and revised to better serve the student body and SGA. Proposals to amend or change the constitution can be brought up at any time by all senators and members of the executive council, however, they will not be implemented until proper voting by the student body takes place.

Ever wonder why all undergraduate students at Chapman University pay a student activities fee? It helps provide services for students, such as programming done by UPB, or projects worked on by the Student Government Association. SGA funds clubs and organizations, campus departments, and undergraduate students. We also use our budget to fund projects that enrich the Chapman experience, such as the Laptops-to-Go machine in the union or adding more water bottle refilling stations.
