• Student Government Association

    The University of Charleston Student Government Association (SGA) is the student organization that serves as the governing body for the entire student body at UC.

    There are 17 members that make up the SGA Council. There are 5 Executive Board Officers — President, VP of Project Development, VP of Communications, VP of Student Organizations, and VP of Finance. There are 6 Upperclassmen Senators, who are made up of Seniors and Juniors. There are 3 Sophomore Senators and 3 Freshmen Senators. For the year 2017-2018, the number of Freshmen Senators increased by 3 after having a record breaking number of applicants. The Dean of Students is the advisor for SGA.

    All members of the SGA serve for a one-year term and must be re-elected to continue in SGA. The SGA Council is decided by votes from the student body. SGA works with various members of the administration, faculty, and staff to make UC the best that it can be for all students.
