Student Government

SFAI’s Student Alliance and Legion of Graduate Students (LOGS) serve as the official voice of students to faculty and administration.

These two governing bodies—Student Alliance, representing the undergraduate students, and Legion of Graduate Students (LOGS), representing the graduate and post-baccalaureate students—promote the social and academic interests of students through advocacy, programming, and services.

All students are welcome to attend meetings. Come request funding from the Student Alliance or LOGS to implement a student event or club on campus!

Download the Proposal Form for instructions on how to submit.

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Proposals must benefit the SFAI Community and enrich student experience
  • Proposals will only be allowed for events that have not yet occurred.
  • Proposals must be complete and submitted in a timely manner.
  • If a proposal is sponsored by Student Alliance/LOGS, the resulting event or program must be open to all SFAI students and widely advertised around the Chestnut Street campus and Fort Mason Center (as appropriate).
  • Students and student groups receiving funding must acknowledge "Sponsored by Student Alliance" or "Sponsored by LOGS" in all on-campus publications and announcements regarding the event/program.

Note: Allotted Student Alliance/LOGS proposal money may be revoked if the proposal is severely altered or modified after its approval.

Any proposals over $200 will automatically be tabled to the next week. Student Alliance may also request revisions of proposal funding on a case to case basis.
