What is the Student Government Association (SGA)?
As the governing student body of Illinois Institute of Technology, SGA's role is to act as a liaison between the university's administration and its student body, and to serve as a forum to express student opinion. SGA provides opportunities for students to interact with members of the administration and formulate policy that impacts the university in the long term. SGA represents students and their opinions to improve academic and student life at Illinois Tech. There are several branches of SGA that deal with specific issues. Executive Board and Senate seats are elected positions, while the Judicial Board and Finance Board seats are appointed or nominated. Additionally, SGA committees are open to volunteers who need not be appointed or elected, and who simply wish to lead projects or get involved at the ground level.
How do I get involved?
You're already on the right track to getting involved. Continue checking out the rest of our site or email us using our contact page. Any student may join a Senate committee, in which students provide direct input on important issues and lead project to address those issues. Students may run for an elected position as well, with Senate elections held in the Fall and Executive Board elections held in the Spring. Students may also be appointed to Judicial Board or Finance Board. All of these positions provide excellent opportunities to make a real difference at Illinois Tech. SGA is looking for motivated students who want to make an impact. No experience is required - just the desire to get involved and make a difference!
