Student Government
Southeast Tech’s Student Government Association is the largest student organization on campus. Gain leadership skills, network yourself, meet friends, and find out why it’s such a fun time to be in SGA!

The organization’s purpose is to further the tradition, spirit, and ideals of the Institution and to provide a means through which the democratic will of the student body may be expressed. In addition, student government leads, informs, serves, represents, and ensures those persons from whom it derives right to govern.

There can be two representatives from the first year, and two representatives from the second year of each Associate Degree and Diploma program. This shall include all full and part-time students attending daytime, online, or evening programs.

How to become an official member:

  1. Tell your program advisor you want to join Student Government.
  2. Have your program advisor send an email to the student activities coordinator.
  3. The student activities coordinator will place your name on the roster.

Student Government has an Executive Board of 9 officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, Parliamentarian, Publicity Chair, Civic Chair, and Social Chair.
