The SGA provides for the equitable expenditure of the Student Government Association Fee funds, as determined by the students. The SGA is composed of two student representatives from each of the academic programs. The selection process varies among programs. The SGA is advised by the Director of Student Life and Assistant Dean of Academic & Student Affairs.
