The Student Government Association is an organization established to be the voice of the students. Our goals for this year are to embrace the student body and assist our students in discovering themselves as we take them on a journey of becoming the prominent leaders of the future. As you journey along the path, you will be able to incorporate yourself into new learning experiences, become aware of the legislative issues that affect you as a student, recognize the beneficial resources and services provided by the college, but most importantly, treasure every moment as you develop yourself and become the inspiration of others.

As your new representatives, we plan to continue the legacy that our predecessors have left and fulfill our responsibilities with high expectations. The Executive Board and I will continue to advocate the students' needs to the college administration and educate the student body on the crucial legislative issues that has a major impact on them here at Miami Dade College, North Campus. We will represent the student body with dignity, open and honest communication and assume the full responsibilities of our office as well as continuing to unify the clubs and campuses of Miami Dade College.

Remember. This isn't about us. It's about the student body and your rights as individuals. The Student Government Association will provide an atmosphere where students can discover their full potential and transform into the leaders of tomorrow. We will strive to create long lasting leaders as we enter the doors of opportunity.

We are excited for what the future has in store for us.

What is Student Government Association?

Student Government Association (SGA) is an organization that represents all students rather than one special interest group on campus.

SGA works as a liaison between the student population and the administration. We serve, represent and advocate for the students. All concerns, suggestions, comments, and solutions are addressed by SGA in a professional and powerful way, so that the faculty and administration are kept up to date as to what affects students. We also interact with the students and get involved in numerous activities. SGA is a gateway to so many wonderful things. You can gain valuable skills in civic responsibility, financial management, embracing diversity, serving the community, interpersonal and cross-cultural communication.

Join SGA and be part of the Excitement!
