Undergraduate Student Government Addresses Underutilized Funding and Disconnect from Campus OrganizationsBy Abby Godsen | April 20
The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) at IUPUI cites their mission as being, “committed to improving the student experience by representing the student body, supporting student-led organizations on campus, addressing student concerns." According to their site, USG provides a platform for student involvement, while providing education surrounding social justice, diversity, equity and inclusion. While USG does provide support to students, their $85,000 budget for the 2022-2023 school year has been underutilized, diluting the impact the organization could be making at IUPUI. There is a fundamental disconnect between USG and the needs of organizations at IUPUI, one that USG acknowledges themselves.
