Student Government Association


The Student Government Association (SGA) at Southwest represents the College’s commitment to participation by students in decision making for programs, committees and other issues that directly affect students. The College is dedicated to student involvement in these matters. SGA serves as the student’s voice.

SGA may administer up to 10% of the anticipated revenue under the approval of the Dean of Student Success. This budget may be utilized for projects to benefit the student body and enhance engagement among Southwest students. The Dean of Student Success has official oversight of the entire student activities budget. Funding is utilized to sponsor clubs and organizations, intramural and club sports, special programs for students, improvements to student programs and areas, and other special events.

The SGA Senate is comprised of eight sophomore senators elected in the spring and six freshmen elected in early fall. The elected body then becomes the student voice at Southwest. More information about the SGA can be found online at sw.edu/sga.
