USG values

two people icon


USG works to amplify the student voice to University of Iowa staff, faculty, and administrators, as well as the Board of Regents, the State of Iowa, and the nation. We strive to acknowledge and honor the diverse needs, concerns, and perspectives of students as we advocate for the collective good of the student body.

friendship icon


USG values the multitude of individuals and organizations that contribute to the well-being of our diverse university community. We believe that building relationships and coalitions among these stakeholders - including local, state, and national partners - furthers our collective mission.

five people icon


USG is dedicated to a sense of community by: developing relationships, listening and responding to student concerns, sharing information and resources, and creating opportunities to contribute to the Hawkeye community.

equity inclusive icon


USG will use its privilege as a representative body to create change that benefits and empowers all students. We recognize the historic and current marginalization and oppression of many identities within our university community and across the world, and we will strive to include those identities through active engagement. The pursuit of justice and equity must always guide our work.
