Student Government Association

Houston SGA members

SGA — We Are Listening!

Students who participate in SGA have made a commitment in a leadership role to promote cooperation among students, staff and faculty, as well as to improve the overall environment for the physical, social and academic welfare of those taking classes. SGA, by its very nature, is a vehicle to focus into a single voice the ideas and opinions of students to other institutions as well as to the general administration. Student input will continue to be vital and sought out as decisions are made about the physical structure and use of this state-of-the-art building.

The Student Government Association (SGA) consists of executive officers plus a representative body made up of students from the various academic disciplines. 

The number of representatives is based on a 1:75 departmental representative to student ratio.  If you are interested in serving as one of the representatives, please email Deb Unruh for more information.

SGA meetings are held once or twice a month, with the exception of May, December and summer months.  Meeting dates and locations will be determined by September 30th, 2022. SGA meetings are open to all enrolled students, unless the executive board is planning to discuss sensitive or confidential business matters.
