Student Government Association


The Student Government Association (SGA) provides a forum for the open exchange of views and ideas on matters of importance to students. The SGA defends students’ rights, advocates on behalf of students, and helps to formulate academic and institutional policies that affect students. It governs student clubs, groups and organizations and provides funding via its SGA annual budget allocation from the City Colleges of Chicago.  Finally, the SGA plans and sponsors social and cultural events throughout the academic year.    

SGA works to sustain, promote and represent the interests of the student body, to provide a forum in which the counsel of the faculty and administration may be expressed, and in which opinions may be stated, debated and resolved in the democratic tradition of this nation.


The SGA is governed by the Guidelines for the Organization and Operation of Student Government AssociationsAcademic & Student Policy, and the Board Policies and Procedures for Management and Government.                  

SGA Officers

SGA officers are students elected as representatives by the student body. Officers are advised by their appointed advisor and the Associate Dean of Student Development (or designee). SGA offers must maintain a minimum of 6 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.75. Elections for SGA officers and senators occur annually during the spring semester. The SGA offers a great opportunity for students to develop or enhance their leadership skills.
