Who We Are

The ROOT Family

Our Background

The SUTD Student Government, also known as ROOT, is the official governing body at Singapore University of Technology and Design.

ROOT aims to create an active and lively school culture and environment by supporting Fifth Rows development as well as by organizing Orientation and other student welfare related events.

As the bridge between school offices and the student body, ROOT also aims to represent the student voice and bring transparency to the school’s policy decisions. By organizing GRASS engagement and Dialogue sessions, we provide open channels for effective communication between students, staff and faculty.
