About SGA

SGA consists of an Executive Council of officers and committee chairs, a Student Senate that handles academic issues, and a House of Representatives that oversees all clubs and organizations on campus. The organization meets biweekly to vote on club funding requests, legislation, and the varying needs of Centre College students. 

Elections: SGA holds elections at the beginning of each school year for class representative elections, with the Executive Council and Student Senate positions filled in the previous spring semester. 

Committees: Representatives serve on committees that deal with specific aspects of campus life. These representatives also approve all club funding and new student organizations. The six committees are Finance, Campus Improvements, Student Affairs, Programming, Dining Services, and Communications.

Committees meet to conduct business in their respective areas. These committees often bring business to the general body of SGA which meets during fourteen general sessions held throughout the year. Students not currently members of SGA can also bring forward business.

SGA is governed by its constitution which delegates roles and assigns powers. Any amendments to this document must be approved by the student body and the Centre College Board of Trustees.
