Voter Registration

SAM has made voter registration its number one priority for the 2015-16 school year. By April 30, 2016, it is our goal to have registered to vote at least one percent of all of the students attending public universities in the State of Michigan: We will register at least 3,000 students this year!

University Communication

The Executive Team intends to be in constant communication with the members of the organization going forward. We are excited to roll out a new executive role dedicated solely to handling such communication and organizing: the Secretary of Communications. The individual filling this role will be in constant contact with the Student Government Association presidents from each university.  In addition, they will be aid conference host schools in the planning, organizing, and execution of conferences.


College is a busy time from even the average student, but we understand that the leaders/aspiring leaders that universities tend to send to our conference are busier still.  A new service the Student Association of Michigan plans to provide to our affiliates is an at-a-glance news hub.  We want to keep our members and followers informed with the most up-to-date information and news concerning higher education, but in a way which is accessible to students. We will provide short, 30-second summaries of the most important-to-education news, with topics including legislation, important decisions, campus events, etc.

Student Association of Michigan


The Student Association of Michigan is a statewide advocacy organization whose mission is to represent, serve, and protect the collective interests of students in higher education in Michigan. 

The vision of the Student Association of Michigan is a political climate in Michigan in which student and higher education issues are at the forefront of the political agenda, and an organization whose size, strength, credibility, and political capital have the ability to actively influence such an agenda.
