    The Student Government Association (SGA) is the governing body of all student clubs and organizations on campus. SGA is directly responsible for the clubs’ annual funding. The student government has many committees serving students’ interests including: academic affairs, events programming, elections/recruitment, human and community relations, finance, public relations, and student affairs. SGA’s mission at Monmouth University is to promote the welfare of the student body.

  • SGA is also responsible for the development and presentation of a number of programs that take place every year.  Homecoming represents one program in particular in which SGA has had a long-standing involvement.  SGA has historically coordinated the nominations and voting for the Homecoming court, the presentation of the Pep Rally and the coordination of the Homecoming parade. Another important tradition for SGA is the Big Event, day of community service. The Big Event began in 2000 and it has become the single largest community service event held at Monmouth University. SGA also coordinates the Giving Tree program which collects/distributes gifts to local families and children in need. Springfest is considered the capstone event that is held on the last Sunday of the spring semester. Springfest is an end of year celebration that is filled with good food, live music, novelty events and giveaways for Monmouth students.
