Student Government Association

About the Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is made up of members of the School of Professional & Continuing Studies student body, supervised by an administrative board that meets regularly. The SGA is governed by its constitution and bylaws.

The mission of SGA is to promote and organize events and activities throughout the academic year designed to engage SPCS students with each other as well as with the campus community.

SGA events include socials, group attendance at Spider sports events, Exam Week Snack at the end of the fall and spring semesters and other events that utilize academic resources available on campus.

SGA encourages students to support one another in accomplishing academic and personal goals by taking advantage of opportunities to meet peers, members of the SPCS faculty and staff and other members of the greater University community.

SPCS Representation on University-wide Committees

The SGA president represents SPCS on the University of Richmond Presidents’ Council, which serves as a communication liaison among the school student governments (SPCS SGA, Jepson School, Law School, Richmond College, Robins School and Westhampton College). The Council will communicate student government issues/business with one another in order to ensure support and understanding among all colleges. In addition, the Presidents’ Council will serve as a reporting body for student representatives selected/elected to serve on important university committees.

The SPCS Alumni Association-SPCS SGA Scholarship

In the fall of 2007, the SPCS Alumni Association and SPCS SGA joined forces to establish the SPCS Alumni Association-SPCS Student Government Association Scholarship. It is the shared mission of our organizations to help students achieve their educational goals. We feel strongly that the partnership between students and alumni created by this effort will foster a culture of giving that will benefit our students, alumni, and the school.
