Undergraduate Student Government

at The Ohio State University

Student Affairs

Role and Mission:

The Student Affairs committee strives to advance the Student Quality of Life at The Ohio State University. We have identified four factors as benchmarks for improvement: Affordability, Accountability, Accessibility, and Advance-ability. We aim to consider these factors as we undertake projects to better the existing features of Student Life, and target and fulfill the need for additional resources and opportunities.
