Student Government Association
Strong emphasis is placed on student involvement in all facets of life at the College. The Southern Vermont College Student Government Association (SGA) works closely with faculty and staff to ensure that students' needs and concerns are addressed, students are represented on all standing committees, and student input is considered in the formulation of College policy. The President of the Association acts as the Student Representative to the Southern Vermont College Board of Trustees. The SGA selects two representatives for the Judicial Review Board and appoints students to serve on various other committees at the College.
