What is SGA?

Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of the student body and serves as the student governing body responsible for representing students' interests and addressing students' needs with the campus leadership. Members of SGA acquire leadership, organizational and communication skills as through the workshops and trainings they participate in.  They represent the student body in campus, college and state meetings.

What is the mission of Student Government Association?

The mission of the Wolfson Campus SGA is to represent the student body and act as catalyst for positive change.

  • Serve as a voice and advocate for students.
  • Inform students of policy changes as well as campus and community activities.
  • Promote interaction and communication among the Wolfson Campus Family.
  • Provide leadership that inspires student participation, contribution and service.
  • Create a fun environment that celebrates diversity, encourages student success and nurtures personal growth.

How is SGA structured?

SGA is composed of an executive board and a senate. The executive board is elected by fellow students for a one-year term. Elections are held during the Spring semester, in April.  All Wolfson Campus, registered students with a valid student ID card are eligible to vote.

The function of the Executive board is as follows:

The President represents the student body at functions and meetings that are held on or off campus.

The Vice President assists the President in representing the student body at senate meetings, events and committees.

The Secretary maintains all minutes and correspondence.

The Treasurer maintains accurate records of income and expenditures.

The Senators create committees to define students’ concerns and how to best represent them to the campus leadership team. Additionally committees are set to create events, community service projects and workshops and trainings.  They are also required to represent the student body at many campus functions.

What do I need to become a Senator?

To become a SGA Senator, a student must have a Cumulative Grade Point Average of at least a 2.0 and be enrolled at the Wolfson Campus for a minimum of six credits.
