The Student Government Association (SGA)

The mission of the Empire State University SGA is to ensure Blue, Mascot, SGA,that the student experience at Empire State University is excellent.

Empire State University SGA accomplishes this by engaging, listening, and advocating.

  • We engage students by bringing the campus community together, hosting parties, events, and workshops.
  • We listen to the needs of constituents ensuring they are connected with the appropriate resources and support to reach their academic goals.
  • We advocate on behalf of the student body by communicating with the administration and presenting resolutions and policy recommendations to the university senate.
