Office of Student Body President
The Student Body President works closely with the Student Body Vice President to ensure the opinions and concerns of the student body of NDSU is heard at every level in overseeing Student Government as a whole. In addition, the Student Body President sits on several campus committees and task forces, including but not limited to: President Bresciani’s Cabinet, Senate Coordinating Council, President’s Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs, Student Fee Advisory Board, Finance Advisory Board and Presidents’ Panel. The Student Body President also facilitates weekly meetings with the Student Government Executive Commissioners and aids senators with any resources or assistance they may need. On a statewide level, the Student Body President also advocates for students by communicating and collaborating with both the State Board of Higher Education and the state legislature.

Student Fee Advisory Board
The Student Fee Advisory Board (SFAB) was created with the purpose of having a unified system of reviewing proposals to increase or decrease the six mandatory fees which the University President controls: The Library Fee, Technology Fee, Student Activity Fee, Health Fee, Wellness Fee, and Career Services Fee.
This year only four of the six fees are requesting increases: The Library Fee, Student Activity Fee, Health Fee, and Technology Fee. As per state law, the total amount of fee increases must equal $2.88 per credit (up to 12 credits), which is 1% of the current, in-state, base tuition at NDSU.
SFAB Process and Hierarchy:
Current Fee Amounts and Proposals:
*Student Media is made up of the Spectrum, BIN, and KNDS.
Because of the $2.88 cap for student fee increases, the State Board of Higher Education would need to approve the $3.39 increase if all of the primary proposals are granted to fee seeking entities. SFAB will take this into consideration when recommended fee increases to the President.
