Student Government Organization (SGO)

SGO serves as the voice of the students at the AU/UGA Medical Partnership.

This governmental body has initial authority to administer student activity fees within the general guidelines for the use of state funds. The organization consists of elected representatives from each class.

The SGO promotes social and entertainment events, fundraising events and provides feedback regarding student health, student housing, parking and other student services. Most importantly, the SGO serves as a primary link between students, administration and faculty. Much progress has been brought about through meaningful discussion between SGO members and the AU/UGA Medical Partnership faculty and administrators.

If you are interested in participating in the SGO, please reach out to Tristan Hancock at tristanj@uga.edu.

 

Student Interest Groups (SIGs)

Student organizations exist to support the overall objectives of the AU/UGA Medical Partnership. Student organizations offer individual students an opportunity to broaden their academic experience. Skills obtained through membership in student organizations serve as a valuable supplement to the formal curriculum.

Student organizations can cover a broad range of interests that include academic organizations, special medical interest groups, religious organizations, honorary societies, and international and multicultural organizations.

The list of our AY 2024-2025 SIGs will be posted here by September 2024. If you have questions regarding SIGs, contact Tristan Hancock (tristanj@uga.edu).
