PSG stands for Professional Student Government. We’re just what you’d expect: we’re the student government that represents professional students at the University of Minnesota. We have three branches of government: executive, legislative, and judicial. Leaders in PSG are either elected or appointed by professional student Councils or the professional student body.
Think of PSG as like the US federal government, and professional student Councils as like states. PSG brings together all the Councils in one organization. It represents every professional student, from every Council and academic program. It provides resources to the Councils and their students. It accords comity and facilitates coordination between all Councils.
If you’re a fees-paying professional student at the University of Minnesota, PSG’s professional development grants can help cover the cost of traveling to an off-campus event. PSG also advocates for you at the University. On the state and national level, PSG represents you and your interests with legislators and government leaders.
