Mission Statement

Student Government is a Sponsored Student Organization that represents the voice of the students to the UTSA administration as well as external organizations. We do this by surveying students, creating new ideas and solutions for the campus community, and hosting events that connect students together.

Logo Meaning

Our logo is among the first things that people see when they think of Student Government Association, and we want to make sure it encapsulates the ideals that we hold dear.


The Circle

The circle represents the continuing development that we all go through as students, leaders, and as people. There is no beginning or end to the circle, just as there is no true beginning or end to our development into the people we are, and will be.

The Wreath

The wreath represents the everlasting bond between the University and its students, through thick and thin. Laurel wreaths like the one in our logo were used in the ancient Greek Olympic Games to reward the winners of the competitions, and in Rome to congratulate successful commanders after significant military victories. This is included in our logo to show that no matter what happens to our students, whether it be good or bad, we as a UTSA community will join together in the spirit of unity and prevail over whatever challenges we may face

The Torch and the Flame

The Torch represents SGA itself, which supports and nourishes the flame, which is the fiery passion with which the students of UTSA will change the world around them. The four arches around the rim of the Torch represent the Faculty, Staff, Administration, and Students, who must all come together to make this dream continue to be a reality.

Student Government being within the Circle

Student Government is surrounded by the circle of well-rounded student leaders, who protect and defend SGA and the ideals it encourages, just as you pledged to protect and defend the SGA Constitution in your oath of office.
