The Student Government Association (SGA)

SGA is the primary affinity group that represents the voice of the student body. Recognizing the final authority of the Board of Trustees in matters of governance of the College, SGA provides a forum for the expression of student views on issues that affect them and promotes the development of leadership skills for all students. SGA selects student representatives to: 1) participate in College governance and the decision-making process; 2) develop social, cultural, and educational programming; and 3) allocate funds generated by the collection of student activities fees. The Student Activity Fee is a fee charged to all credit students each academic term. The revenue generated goes into a special account administered by the SGA to fund social, recreational, and cultural events; clubs and student organizations; authorized student travel and service trips; and annual signature student events such as New Student Convocation, Success Week, Welcome Week, and Wellness Events. The fee is charged on a credit-hour basis for up to a maximum of 10 credit hours. 
  
Leadership opportunities are available for students interested in serving as SGA officers and/or students wishing to take part in College committees and taskforces. The executive committee of the SGA consists of a president, vice president for public relations, vice president for administration, vice president for communications, and vice president for finance. Students interested in leadership positions are invited to stop by the Student Center, H-101, and talk to Jennifer Moxley.

An essential component to the success of the SGA is active participation in the College governance process. The SGA appoints interested students to serve as representatives to the College senate and College-wide committees and task forces. While previous student government experience is helpful, all students with interest, commitment, and enthusiasm are encouraged to participate. In addition to the leadership skills student representatives develop, indication of active participation is an excellent highlight on résumés and applications for admission to four-year colleges.
 
SGA supports student learning by encouraging and recognizing the formation of clubs and organizations that engage students in a wide array of social, cultural, and educational offerings. Copies of the SGA Constitution and/or information on club meetings can be found by contacting the advisor listed or by stopping by the Center for Student Engagement in the Student Center, H-101.
