Dear UNI Panthers:

On behalf of Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG), we wanted to be one of the first to welcome you to the 2017-2018 new school year here at the University of Northern Iowa.

For some of you, this may be your first time stepping on campus. For others, you have seen all that this university has to offer and are simply coming back for more. For all, you are about to proceed on the most amazing journey of your life, and we are here as your student leaders to assure that journey goes as smoothly as possible.

Northern Iowa Student Government is the governing organization for the entire student body, in place to represent you as a student with administrators, within the region and at the state level. Our ultimate goal is to assure we are advocating for you, being the voice for all students and making sure you live and embody what it means to be a Panther during your time here at UNI.  

NISG is a group comprised of several students from each college that serve as senators within the legislative branch, a group of justices that make up the judicial branch, and several upper cabinet members, including the President and Vice President that form an executive branch.  

In addition to making sure your voices are heard, Northern Iowa Student Government works to support over 250 student organizations by allocating over $300,000 dollars annually for student activity.

We also coordinate lobbying efforts on behalf of students at the capitol and with the Board of Regents, work diligently on student-led initiatives, create connections with alumni and work directly with administration to continue to make Northern Iowa an amazing place to get an education.

We are actively looking to expand the reach of the student voice. So, if you are looking to learn more about NISG and all the opportunities within it, consult our website (https://nisg.uni.edu) to see how you can make your mark as a senator, lower cabinet director, justice or committee member. We would love to add you to our outstanding team as we work to make our vision for campus a reality this year.

You are about to embark on an excursion of a lifetime here in this academic year, and we plan to be there every step of the way as you tackle any challenges and turn them into opportunities at the University of Nothing Impossible. We are excited to work with such a great student body this year, and cannot wait to represent you.

Once again, welcome—we here in Northern Iowa Student Government wish you all a spectacular school year!

— Jamal White, Student Body President

— Tristan Bernhard, Student Body Vice President
