About Student Government

Student Government Association serves to facilitate the successful relationship between the student body, College administration and the surrounding community. The SGA Constitution highlights matters of governance, student recognition, student activity funding and other matters of importance to the student community.

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the formally recognized “voice of the students.” Under the leadership of an executive board (president, vice president, secretary and comptroller), elected at large by the student body, the SGA assures formal student input into the College’s policy-making process. Committees responsible to the SGA include the Le Moyne Student Programming Board (LSPB), Organizational Finance and Review Committee (OFRC), Student Affairs Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, Commuter Affairs Committee and the Multicultural Affairs Committee.

The SGA assumes responsibility and power for student-life policy legislation. It is responsible for initiating or being consulted on general student-life legislation, judicial procedures, residence hall policy and the selection of candidates for many administrative offices. The SGA is also responsible for naming members of the student body to serve on any College committee where student representation has been specified.
