The Central Student Government (CSG) of the University of Michigan, are comprised of students of different backgrounds who have come together to serve our fellow students and the entire University of Michigan community.

Through our work and advocacy, we seek to encourage student civic engagement, give voice to student concerns, and enhance student welfare and the Michigan experience for everyone.

CSG is motivated by the belief that there is no deeper expression of commitment to our school than to work to improve Michigan so that it realizes its greatest potential.


The Central Student Government has three main governing documents. These include the Constitution, Compiled Code, and Operating Procedures of the Student Assembly.

The Constitution was ratified in 2010 by students at-large and dramatically changed the structure to what it is today. Apart from declaring the structure of the Central Student Government, the Constitution also defines its relation to other student governments, student organizations and enumerates basic student rights.

The Compiled Code further defines the structure and functions of the organization. It defines logistics for all components of the legislative, executive and judicial ranches, elections, and specifies some student organization requirements

The Operating Procedures define the rules and procedures of the Student Assembly, a group composed of elected representatives, which is one house of the legislative branch.

The Standing Rules are a set of rules affecting the Assembly during its current Legislative Session which expand upon the Operating Procedures to the particular preferences of the sitting Assembly.
