Thunderbird Student Government

As representatives of the student body, Thunderbird Student Government seeks to promote the welfare of each individual by enhancing the student experience, along with ensuring the satisfaction of the institution as a whole. As citizens of the world we strive to promote values of diversity and inclusion to create a sustainable environment that allows us to excel as professionals during and after our studies.


The main objective of Thunderbird Student Government is to provide the students with the opportunity to raise their interests and concerns so they may be brought before the faculty and administration to adjust according to the needs and wants of students, as long as it is in the best interest of the institution as a whole. Proper management and allocation of resources is essential to promote school traditions and cultural involvement, which has become key for the development of global leaders for many years.

Traditions & Events

Regional Night: Thunderbird Student Government is in charge of hosting 1 Regional Night per semester. Each Regional Night focuses on a particular area of the world and allows the student body to learn and experience the cultural richness of these areas. Each event is wholly student-led and includes performances, trivia, cultural fashion, food and beverages related to the region being celebrated.

Global Gala: This event celebrates our graduating students each semester as they transition to be a part of our beloved alumni network. The entire student body is invited to this event, making it a true Global Gala.

Club Day: Thunderbird offers many clubs for students to get involved with based on their interests and preferences. The Student Government hosts Club Day so that these clubs can showcase what they have to offer. Students may join as many clubs as they wish.



Every Thursday the Thunderbird Community gets together at a pub in Phoenix to unwind from a hard week. Below is the schedule of our Pub Nights for the Fall 2019 semester.

Month Location
