Student Governance Association (SGA) represents and advances the interests of the GCNYC student body. The mission of the SGA is to empower and unify the GCNYC student body. The mission will be met through student advocacy and organized interrelations between students, administration, and faculty.

The SGA, on behalf of the student body, will be responsible for:

  1. Identifying student concerns and needs, and working with faculty and administration to communicate and fulfill all expressed needs and concerns.
  2. Maintaining interrelations between faculty, administration, and students.
  3. Holding regular meetings, including recording and posting meeting minutes.
  4. Nominating, electing, and/or appointing members to internal positions.
  5. Approving student clubs, organizations, publications, and budgets, if applicable.
  6. Other duties identified and defined by the Student Association.

SGA was created to represent, empower, and unify the student body across all cohorts, facilitating cross-functional dialogue between students, faculty, and administration. Joining the SGA is a great way to meet and network with students, as well as established industry professionals who are faculty and friends of the school.
