Students are encouraged to voice ideas and concerns about their experiences at the Colorado School of Mines through their respective student government associations:
The USG at the Colorado School of Mines is the recognized undergraduate organization that delivers the voice of the student body to the Faculty, Administrators, and the Board of Trustees. Throughout the year, USG works to represent students on a variety of campus committees. Student Government will debate and discuss issues that are pertinent to the students and work to address student concerns. In addition to governance, USG hosts a variety of events throughout the year to initiate student involvement.
The GSG is the governing body of graduate students at Colorado School of Mines. The GSG Council is composed of one graduate student representative from each academic department offering graduate degree programs. The Council meets the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month to make decisions to guide GSG policies and activities, and the meetings are open to any interested graduate students.
