More than 100 years of service
In 1912, IU’s first student council was appointed. By 1948, the Student Council was renamed and recreated as the Student Senate, and in 1967, underwent a similar change to become the Student Government. Between 1974 and 1975, the Student Government was given the name it held until the spring of 2018, the Indiana University Student Association (IUSA). Today, we're proud to be the Indiana University Student Government (IUSG). Though it has experienced a variety of iterations and names, IUSG remains committed to its core beliefs of protecting student rights, enriching student life, and improving Indiana University.
We are proud to have served Hoosiers for more than a century. Our alumni association boasts a CEO of the IU Alumni Association, a political reporter for Bloomberg, former mayors in Bloomington and Fort Wayne, the first woman in the US to serve a full four-year term as US Attorney, and the first woman to run for Governor of IN.
