What is SGA responsible for?

Hint: a lot. Here's just three to name a few.

Student Organizations

We approve new student organizations, flourishing our student community and giving each student a place they feel they truly belong.

Student Activities Fund

We allocate funds so the organizations you love can plan events and feed you during meetings. You're welcome.

Ensuring things are fair

The Judicial Board handles appeals from student organizations who feel they were not treated fairly to ensure we keep communication open.

What is the Student Government Association (SGA)? 

As the governing student body of Illinois Institute of Technology, SGA’s role is to act as a liaison between the university’s administration and its student body, and to serve as a forum to express student opinion. SGA provides opportunities for students to interact with members of the administration and formulate policy that impacts the university in the long term. SGA represents students and their opinions to improve academic and student life at Illinois Tech. There are several branches of SGA that deal with specific issues. Executive Board and Senate seats are elected positions, while the Judicial Board and Finance Board seats are appointed or nominated. Additionally, SGA committees are open to volunteers who need not be appointed or elected, and who simply wish to lead projects or get involved at the ground level.

How do I get involved?

You’re already on the right track to getting involved. Continue checking out the rest of our site or email us using our contact page. Any student may join a Senate committee, in which students provide direct input on important issues and lead project to address those issues. Students may run for an elected position as well, with Senate elections held in the Fall and Executive Board elections held in the Spring. Students may also be appointed to Judicial Board or Finance Board. All of these positions provide excellent opportunities to make a real difference at Illinois Tech. SGA is looking for motivated students who want to make an impact. No experience is required – just the desire to get involved and make a difference!

Hi, I like good things such as politics or french fries. Ask me about good things such as moral philosophy or why the commons won't let you swipe in guests (I know it sucks sorry). I am here to facilitate the good things and changes you want made. There is no suggestion or problem too big or too small; please let me know what you want so that we can help make your and your peers' lives heaven on IIT.
