What is SGA?
The Student Government
Association is a group of student leaders who represent the student body
by making recommendations to and consulting with the college
administration, faculty, and staff on matters that concern the well
being of the student body. SGA members meet with staff from the dining
hall, maintenance, and security to address any concerns of the
students. SGA coordinates student forums with the Harcum’s President,
Dr. DeTemple, and other college administrators. SGA coordinates
fundraising and selection of the senior class gift. SGA may plan
various student events.
Why join SGA?
a member of SGA, you are the voice for your classmates and your school.
You help make decisions to make the college better and develop
relationships with faculty and staff. The stronger SGA is, the more
voice students will have in the activities of the college. You also
play an important role in commencement activities. Being a member of SGA
shows your strength as a leader at Harcum, and is a valuable addition
to your resume.
Once I’m a member of SGA, what would I have to do?
members meet every other week for about an hour. The SGA President
sets the agenda for these meetings and usually you spend time planning
for upcoming activities, discussing issues on campus, or reporting back
about past meetings or events. SGA members have other duties depending
on their position, including acting as a student liaison to food,
maintenance, or security staff.
