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.

You are welcome to participate in any student government meeting or activity, or to request funding from the Student Alliance or LOGS to implement a student event on campus.

Student Alliance/LOGS will review proposals based on the following criteria:

  • Proposals must benefit the SFAI Community.
  • Priority is given to proposals that enrich the student experience at SFAI.
  • 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.
  • Allotted Student Alliance/LOGS proposal money may be revoked if the proposal is severely altered or modified after its approval.
  • Student Alliance automatically tables any proposal over the amount $200 for one week.
