Chicago State University
Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the representative body for students and serves as the umbrella organization to all campus student organizations. The SGA exists primarily to address student concerns and needs, and to provide services that enhance overall student life and development. Working closely with a faculty advisor, the SGA is committed to the representation and advocacy of all students and serves as liaison to administration and other elements of the university community. All students are automatically members of the SGA and as such, are entitled to vote during student elections and participate in all SGA sponsored events and activities. However, one must be voted into and hold an elected office in order to vote on SGA business.
