What is SGA?

Currently, and until January of 2018, the Student Government Association (SGA) of Mount St. Mary's University is comprised of six indivudals who dedicate their complete time and interest in establishing the new form of government created and ratified by the SGA Body of 2017. This new form of government is a parlimentary based body comprised of students elected based off population. The main goal of the SGA is to provide a strong and accurate representation of student voice in the University. This new SGA will work with faculty, staff and university administration to meet its three goals: to actively encourage student interests, provide student organizational support and enhance the experience of handling leadership. SGA works on issues ranging from campus improvements to university policies, as well as recognizing and funding student clubs.
