What is SGA?

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of the student body and serves as the student governing body responsible for representing student’s interests and addressing student’s needs with the campus leadership. Members of Student Government learn leadership, organizational and communication skills as they represent the student body in campus, College and state meetings.

What is the mission of the 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. 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. 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, you 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. All interested students are encouraged to pick up an application at the Student Life Office, Room 2101 or download a printable version.
