Student Government Association (SGA)

SGA logo
The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of Bergen Community College’s students. We play an active role in the shared governance of the College.

The Student Government Association serves as a link between the student body and the college administration, and oversees the administrative aspects of student clubs and organizations.

The Student Government Association is committed to the concept of a democratic form to develop the academic, social, and cultural growth of the student body. The members of our organization are also committed to the fair representation of the student body, and the fulfillment of its needs.
