Student Government Association
The York College Student Government Association (SGA) is comprised of elected student leaders that represent and advocate for the entire student body. These SGA Senators and Officers meet and discuss critical academic and social issues that impact students at large.
Students interested in running for an SGA position must have a minimum GPA of 2.3, with the exception of students interested in running for SGA President, in which case a minimum GPA of 2.75 is required. SGA senators serve on many committees that affect the campus environment, including the York College Faculty/Student Senate, York College Association, Auxiliary Enterprises, and the Curriculum Committee. Members of Student Government also participate in a leadership training conference, where they learn skills and techniques that help them become better leaders.
For additional information on SGA elections, visit the Office of Student Activities in Room AC-1E01.

Need to Know
The Student Government Association (SGA) is comprised of student senators elected by the student body to represent your ideas, concerns, issues, and needs. SGA Senators meet, discuss, and act upon critical issues that impact quality of life from an academic and social standpoint. The Senators serve on the York College Faculty/Student Senate, York College Association, York College Auxiliary Enterprises, Technology Fee Committee, and various other committees that affect the campus environment.
There are several committees in which students outside of the Student Government Association can become involved through an appointment from the SGA such as the Elections Committee, Student Election Review Committee and Student Disciplinary Committee. New committees may be created based on what members of the York community feel is needed, such as the newly re-established food services committee which is used to assist with the selection of a new food services vendor. If you are interested in serving on a committee or would like more information, please reach out the SGA President Wilkins Cerda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Student Government Association is trying to create an online "mailbox" which will allow students to send concerns and suggestions directly to the SGA for review and discussion. Another initiative is the Cardinal Representative link which will be linked to the SGA section in the York website. Also, the SGA is trying to create virtual events based on the traditional Thanksgiving Feast and Holiday Tree lighting Ceremony initiatives for this semester. More information to follow!
The York College Student Government Association seeks to represent the needs and aspirations of all students at York College by enhancing and maintaining reciprocal channels of communication between students, faculty, staff, and the administration at York College.
