Student Government

The Student Government Association (SGA) is committed to enriching the campus life at Sussex. Membership in the SGA affords opportunities to develop interests, explore new ideas, and meet new people.

All enrolled students are members of the SGA, which five elected officers lead, and these officers are elected annually by the student body. The SGA serves as a communication link between the student body and College administration and oversees all student clubs and organizations.

SGA Responsibilities

  • Approving the formation and funding for all student clubs.
  • Setting and monitoring a code of ethics for all clubs and organizations.
  • Electing student representatives to standing committees of the college.
  • Promoting student leadership through training workshops and conferences.
  • Taking part and encouraging club participation in community service.
  • Proposing positive changes and improvements in campus life.
  • Supporting and participating in campus/club projects and events.

SGA elections are held in late April/early May. Applications for Student Government Office will be hosted electronically, and we will hold elections at the end of April. For those students interested in becoming an officer, elected officers receive a work grant equivalent to 6-12 credits.
