COMMITTEES

Committees are open to ALL students on campus

Every member of SGA serves on a specific committee within the Student Government Association. There are 6 different committees that help make up SGA: Financial Affairs Committee, Internal Affairs Committee, Campus Outreach Committee, Rules and Policies Committee, Social Justice Committee, and Student and Academic Affairs Committee. All committees help make things happen around campus and are open to all students (even if you are not on SGA).
