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.
