Our goal is to provide funding and implement changes to better our campus, community, and most importantly the students’ way of life. SGA is comprised of elected and appointed positions that provide representation for the student’s views, rights and interests. Furthermore they maintain academic freedom, academic responsibility and promote student cultural, social and physical welfare through education, community involvement and providing assistance for student activities.
Members of SGA are composed of senators elected or appointed from the academic colleges and living groups.
