SG Leadership Council


Applications to join the Student Government Leadership Council are open and will close in late August.

The Student Government Leadership Council (SGLC) is a committee comprised of eager and driven student leaders looking for a way to get involved within SG. SGLC is a semester long program which details and explains the intricacies of SG. We will dive into the individual roles of each branch: Legislative, Executive, and Judicial. Students will be given the opportunity to discover which area of SG fits them best. We will help each student fulfill their goals by giving them everything they need to know about their area of interest and putting them on the right path to get there.

Throughout the duration of the semester students will learn a great deal about UCF. They will begin to grasp some of the academic resources we offer on campus, the vast expanse of registered student organizations (RSO’s) to become apart, and how to make their own influence here.

At the end of the fall semester, students will be given the opportunity to suggest their branch of interest within SG. The coordinators will divide students, guided by the student interest, into separate councils for each branch. The Executive Leadership Council, Senate Leadership Council, and Judicial Leadership Council allow students to spend the spring semester deep within their preferred area. They will meet SG Agents within those areas and will receive personal mentoring to learn the best practices of their branch.

The SGLC program is open to first and second-year students along with transfer juniors. There is a minimum of a 2.5 GPA for members. As young Knights, you will get hands on experience working with others in a university setting. You will be given many opportunities to take on leadership roles in projects and initiatives across campus!

Judicial Leadership Council

The Judicial Leadership Council (JLC) is a training and mentorship program that allows students to immerse themselves in the Judicial Branch of UCF’s Student Government. Our goal with the Judicial Leadership Council is to inform students about the inner workings of the Judicial Branch so that they can readily and successfully transition to an Associate Justice position on the Judicial Council.

In JLC, you will:

  • Be taught about the responsibilities of the Judicial Branch such as parking appeals, student conduct hearings, grade appeals, eligibility appeals, constitutional review, impeachment hearings, and the Judicial Branch outreach programs.
  • Attend weekly meetings and mentorship pairings between participants and current Justices.
  • Learn how to be an unbiased leader and to serve the best interest of students at all times.
