The University of Charleston Student Government Association (SGA) is the student organization that serves as the governing body for the student body. There are 4 student body officers — President, VP of Project Development; VP of Communications; and VP of Finance —
elected by the entire student body. The House of Governors Chair also resides as an officer on the executive board.
Each class elects three senators who serve to address the specific needs of each UC class.
All members of the SGA serve for one year and they are responsible for all student issues. They have control over a budget that is used to assist with student organizational needs, special campus projects, and community service activities. Additionally, members serve on a variety of University standing
committees. These students are always available to help serve their fellow students at the University.
