The NEIU Student Government Association (SGA) is the governing body for the student body at NEIU. The purpose of SGA is to lead with integrity, embracing our diversity to promote a cohesive and unified student body. It is the mission of the SGA to be the voice of all students.

The SGA is composed of three distinct agglomerating bodies: the Council of Clubs (10 reps), justices (5), and senate (10 senators). These groups are led by the Executive Board, which is composed of the president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, the IBHE-SAC (Illinois Board of Higher Education Student Advisor Council) student representative, and the student trustee.

The senate is the main body that advocates for the student body. The Council of Clubs is the main body advocating for, creating, and funding organization life on campus. SGA members serve on one of the standing committees: The Student Life Committee, the Academic Affairs Committee, Promotions & Appointments Committee.
