The Student Government of Purdue University Calumet serves as the chief advocate for student interests at the University.  As one of the four governance groups, Student Government represents students’ perspectives to faculty, staff and administrators; provides representatives to University committees; and catalyzes inventive projects by which to improve students’ college experiences.

Make-up of Student Government

Student Government is comprised of the Executive Board, which supports the Student Body President and advances the objectives of his or her administration, and the Student Senate, whose delegates are elected from and represent the six Colleges as well as commuter and residential students.

The impressive capabilities of Student Government depend on student support and engagement, so all students are encouraged to become involved!  Participation may be as simple as posting messages to their social media pages or as dedicated as running for office.  Annual elections take place in the spring semester, at which time students have the opportunity to elect their president, vice president, and senators for the coming year. 

Many Ways to Take Part

Students who wish to make more flexible commitments to Student Government may join as representatives and support officers in their projects.  While students gain invaluable leadership experience by being contributing members of their Student Government, they simultaneously enrich campus life.

All Purdue University Calumet students are members by nature of their enrollment in the University. If you have comments or suggestions that you would like to share with your Student Government, or if you would like an application to become a representative or officer, please contact them at (219) 989-2885 or  They look forward to hearing from you!
