 Student Government Association

Aja Humphreys
Director of Student Activities

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.      

The Harold Washington Student Government Association is dedicated to Representing, Inspiring, Supporting, and Empowering (R.I.S.E.) our student voices by fostering an environment of transparency, inclusiveness, and student engagement. We are committed to building and strengthening partnerships within our community to provide opportunities and resources to our student body.

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.
