We Want YOU to Run For Office!
The Legislative election will take place in the fall and students can consider running for a congressional position. As a member of Congress, students will represent IU students and advocate for their needs and opinions. The Executive election will take place every spring. Students can form a ticket of President and Vice President-which comprises the leadership of the executive branch of IUSG. These office holders dictate policy, student representation, and advocacy.
