Student Government Association (SGA)
The Student Government Association is the forum through which students' viewpoints, concerns, and input into campus governance are represented. Positions are filled by student volunteers who are interested in gaining valuable experience while improving campus life.
Three elected and several appointed student leaders meet regularly to focus on various student-related issues. The student body president, student body vice president, and student trustee are elected to fill one-year terms. The SGA has a variety of committees and welcomes student involvement. The Campus Activities Board Chair, Treasurer, and Club Liaison positions also play vital roles in ensuring our students have opportunities to participate in campus life.
The Student Ambassador Program provides STCC students interested in developing leadership and communication skills with the opportunity to serve as role models, advocates, and peer advisors to fellow students. Ambassadors educate students about the many resources available on campus and encourage involvement and engagement in campus life. Ambassadors work closely with college offices and campus initiatives including Student Activities & Development and college-wide events and programs.
