Meet The Representatives

Government Affairs is the official voice for the students at Chico State. It includes elected student officers and staff who represent and advocate on behalf of the student body. Government Affairs offers a variety of engagement opportunities on issues that affect the campus and community. Most importantly, its collective of committees and councils ensure student dollars are being used in ways that directly benefit the students.
