Student Government Association

Mount Mary University’s Student Government Association (SGA) exists to represent the student body in University issues and decisions, both big and small. Students have the opportunity to serve on SGA, gaining leadership experience, supporting the diverse student community, and creating positive change.

What is Student Government Association (SGA)?

The Student Government Association is a group of students elected by their peers to represent their needs and concerns to the University. Members of SGA represent various student populations including resident students, Grace scholars, non-traditional and graduate students, as well as the student body at large. SGA meets weekly to identify campus issues or concerns that need to be addressed.

What does SGA do?

Student Government has several key functions:
1. Seeks student feedback and input
2. Supports student organizations
3. Provides student voice to University administration 
4. Represents students on various campus committees and governing bodies

In addition to these key functions, SGA plans and hosts events that support their overall mission of representing the student body and supporting the Mount Mary mission.
