Student Government Association

SGA President's Address

To My Fellow Patriots, Distinguished Faculty & Staff, & Most-Welcomed Guests,

On behalf of the Student Government Association (SGA) and the University of Texas at Tyler I welcome you to our website. I hope you find our website beneficial, useful, and informational. 40 years ago this university was founded on the principles of academia and scholarship, a tradition we continue to uphold today. As we look to 40 more years and beyond, the University of Texas at Tyler looks to establish itself as one of the premiere institutions not only in the state of Texas, but as well as in the United States. SGA is poised to stand at the helm of this surge encouraging and leading the university's students to higher and greater political, social, and academic heights.

I want to thank all of those that made this opportunity possible for me. To my fellow students I am most grateful for your trust in my abilities as a leader; I promise that I will do my best to uphold the ideals of this institution, while serving the interests of the student body. My first and primary concern is the well-being and success of the students and their desires, dreams, and deportments. To the faculty and staff of this university thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to this institution. You all have made it possible for students across the country to study, live, and work in an amazing environment. We as students would not have enjoyed UT Tyler as much as we do without you and your endeavors. I know we do not always express our gratitude for the countless hours you put in, but on behalf of the student body I want to thank you all for everything you have contributed. Last but not least, I welcome you our guest; I extend the fellowship and love that we share on this campus to you and the rest of the world. We are excited that you have visited our website and hope that you find everything you desired from SGA. If you did not I strongly encourage you to email myself or one of my fellow officers for any further questions.

Finally, I wanted to share my hope and vision for SGA as we continue to move towards bigger and better things. My foremost hope is that we as an SGA amply serve our ever-growing student body in their needs and desires. I hope that we can help them achieve astounding feats and provide them with a campus capable of achieving such feats. I hope that we communicate the voice of all students that want or need to be heard. I hope that we as an SGA can work together to build a stronger line of communication and connection with the faculty and staff. Lastly, I envision our current senate and executive board to continue to lay the foundational roots for a student government that hopefully one day will not only be influencing our university, but universities across the state and the country.

I thank you again for visiting our website, and I wish you the best in all of your endeavors.

With Patriot Pride,

Michael C. Suarez
SGA President
