Student Government Association

Students socializing outside.

The Student Government Association addresses student concerns and issues as the voice of the D'Youville student body.

The elected governing body of the Student Government Association is the senate, which is comprised of an executive council and senators representing part-time students, graduate students, and students from each of the four classes.

The Student Government Association administers the student activity fee which funds leadership programs, student activities, the D'Youville calendar and resource guide, orientation, club events, and athletics. The senate meets twice a month and the meetings are open to all students.

Student Government Association Committees

The Student Government Association committees are composed of SGA senators and members-at-large. Members-at-large are students who have not been elected to hold a particular position but who are active on these committees. All students are invited to become members-at-large and serve on a committee of their interest.

Athletics Committee

The committee is also responsible for intramural events and working with any sport/athletic-based clubs which have been or are seeking official recognition from the Student Government Association. They also report to the SGA Senate any issues or concerns pertaining to athletics.
