The mission of the Baylor University Student Government is to represent the student body, with respect to our Christian commitment and the ideals of Baylor University, through shared governance, as we seek to enrich the quality of student life.
Student Government is responsible for representing the Baylor student body on campus. We partner with the Board of Regents, administration, faculty & staff, and alumni to ensure students are included in the decision-making process. We also work with student organizations to provide funding, through the Student Government Allocation Fund (SGAF) for on-campus events.
Student Body President Lindsey Bacque leads the organization in vision and campus-wide initiatives through relationships with students and administration. Student Body Internal Vice President Joel Polvado also serves as the President of Student Senate and coordinates between the organization and the internal affairs of Baylor University, as they pertain to Student Government. Student Body External Vice President Amye Dickerson works to build relationships between Baylor students and the Waco community while keeping students informed with current events within federal, state, and local government.
