Mission: Developing professional leaders is at the core of KGI’s vision. KGI Student Government strives to ensure our students find value in being integral members of their communities. Participation in student government has become a vehicle for students to develop, advocate for equality, exercise their leadership skills, and experience firsthand how meaningful civic involvement can be in one’s life. Our members strive to philanthropically participate in the local and international communities. KGI prides itself in knowing today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders.
