Student Government Association

Most out-of-classroom activities involving the student body are carried out under the direction of the Student Government Association. The purpose of the Student Government Association is:
  • To provide a central agency by which students may assist in promoting the interest and welfare of the College community;
  • To cooperate with the faculty and staff in the regulation and promotion of student activities;
  • To further the development of a wholesome relationship between the administration and student body;
  • To encourage student participation in the control of those problems which relate particularly to student life;
  • To promote College spirit;
  • To stimulate intelligent thinking on College problems and to serve as an agency for the crystallization and expression of student thought.
Although all students are members of the Student Government Association (SGA), the SGA Constitution provides for a governance system consisting of students elected or appointed by students, who operate on behalf of students.

The basic structure of the SGA governance system consists of three co-equal branches: The Executive Branch, (Cabinet), the Legislative Branch, known as the Student Senate, (a policy-setting group composed of five voting members), and the Judicial Branch, known as the Student Hearing Council, (composed of three students).
