About Us

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the official voice of the student body at Georgia State University. The primary purpose of SGA is to represent the students’ interests to the university and lobby on their behalf. SGA provides a conduit for students to influence how the university operates by dealing directly with Georgia State staff and faculty. Moreover, SGA selects the ten individuals who represent the students in the University Senate as voting members.

SGA appoints students to serve on numerous committees in the university. Some of these committees deal with aspects of student life, such as the Student Life and Development Committee and the Student Activity Fee Committee. The Student Activity Fee Committee decides how funding is divided among the various fee councils, which are composed of Georgia State’s various student organizations. Other committees deal with the finances of the university, such as the Budget and Finance Committee and the Fiscal Advisory Council to the President. Thus, committee members learn about financial aspects of the university and can share these with the rest of the student body.

Students may not be aware of how a major research university operates. As an integral part of the university, SGA understands many of the internal workings of Georgia State and can inform the student body and concerned students about the procedures, structure and organization and issues within the university.

SGA appreciates your feedback on how its members can better serve you. Please fill out a student feedback form and submit to the vice president of student services to let SGA know how to help you.
