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 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 student’s 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.
