The Student Government Association (SGA) prides itself in its commitment to promoting and advocating the student voice and opinion. As the main representative body for nearly 24,000 students, we stay very busy working on behalf of students. This announcement section highlights some of the important work being done in SGA, and relevant updates for the DePaul community.
The Student Government Association is a student-led, community-based organization committed to empowering and advocating for each voice in our DePaul community, no matter where they are studying or engaging from. Our mission is rooted in pursuing equity, promoting diversity and inclusion, and furthering holistic well-being in the University. We use the Vincentian Values as a guiding principle in our approach to advocacy.
SGA is a student organization and facet of the university governance structure comprised of an executive branch, senators, and liaisons representing every student constituency at DePaul. In the past, SGA has led the charge in a number of key issue areas including, but not limited to, fighting for the longevity of the Monetary Award Program (MAP ), securing university funding for the extension of library operation hours, and promoting campus affinity and student well-being. This regularly brings us face-to-face with University administrators and state and local officials.
