Freshman Forum

SGA's Freshman Forum is an Associate Membership Council for freshmen interested in joining Student Government. Members work closely with the Director of Freshman Forum and elected Senators on all major SGA programs and initiatives. This will provide first hand SGA experience and will prepare students for a future in Student Government. It will further enhance leadership skills and provide valuable opportunities for all members to be active components of UAH. Freshmen can apply to SGA's Freshman Forum at the beginning of the fall semester.

It's On Us

its on us uah

1 out of every 5 women, and 1 out of 18 males, are sexually assaulted in college every year. 95 percent of these assaults; however, go unreported. In its efforts to foster the community at UAH, the SGA has decided to address this issue by creating partnerships with key stake holders on campus. UAH SGA hopes to create a culture of accountably, through the "It's on Us" initiative, one that is unwilling to accept sexual misconduct on or around campus. SGA has reached out to the student body in an effort to promote this movement. The first step in the initiative calls for the student body to stand in solidarity by signing the electronic pledge – which states "We, a family at UAH, will not tolerate sexual assault in any of its forms." SGA is proud to be partnering with Dean of Students Office, the Student Life Office, the UAH Interfraternity Council, and Charger Athletics in their current exceptional efforts to spread the message across campus.
