Student Government Association

Governing our students

The Student Government Association (SGA) is recognized as the official governing body of students at JCSU. SGA helps to recommend policies, resolves student grievances, provides input about various issues at the University, and participates in disciplinary procedures.

The SGA president serves as a full-voting member of the University’s Board of Trustees. All students of JCSU are members of SGA. The SGA office is in the Crisp Student Union Annex. The mission of SGA includes fostering greater unity among students; establishing an effective liaison with the administration and faculty; and upholding high standards of scholarship and citizenship in the University community.

The goals of SGA are to:

  1. Serve as a medium for the expression of student opinion and the formulation of University policies.
  2. Assist University personnel in the coordination of student organizations and student-centered programs.
  3. Provide experience in the skills of democratic citizenship.
  4. Support the observances of University policies and regulations,
  5. Assist University officials and student organizations in boosting campus morale.

SGA serves as the official voice by which student opinion is expressed. Students can gain experience and training in responsible political participation and in the development of leadership skills. All students are encouraged to take an active role in the Student Government Association. Refer to the SGA Constitution for additional policies and procedures regarding governance.
