The Student Government Association (SGA):                      

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


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