The Student Government Association (SGA) is the advocacy group representing all Shenandoah students. SGA members are the students who lead the way toward making your campus experience memorable. The SGA represents the needs of students and serves as liaison between the student body and the administrative branch of the university. The SGA oversees the House of Delegates, a collection of student organizations.
The Shenandoah University Student Government Association (SGA) serves to unite the voices of the entire student body by fostering a shared responsibility toward effective problem solving in order to help all students achieve their goals. The SGA creates leaders inside and outside the meeting room — leaders who can translate their skills to effectively improve student organizations.
SGA seeks feedback from the campus community in order to advance programming, policy making and the overall student experience at Shenandoah University.
SGA is an organization led by undergraduate and graduate students who are elected by fellow Shenandoah students to represent the entire student body. The SGA influences the university’s decision-making process by serving as a liaison between the student body and administrative branches of the university.
SGA is committed to understanding the needs of all students and ensuring their Shenandoah experiences are meaningful and successful.
Review the 2021-22 SGA Constitution for more information about the processes and guidelines for SGA. The 2022-23 SGA Constitution will be available soon.
