The Student Government Association (SGA) is the governing body of all the student clubs and organizations at Monmouth University. There are more than 90 clubs and organizations, with more being recognized every year.
SGA is directly responsible for overseeing the annual funding of our clubs and organizations, as well as providing financial assistance to groups and individuals who wish to sponsor a special program or event.
The Senate also sponsors a host of programs every year that include the Big Event (a campus-wide community service project), Homecoming, the annual Giving Trees, Holiday Bazaar, the SGA Charity Auction, and Springfest.
SGA also is actively involved with the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in New Jersey (AICUNJ), the Monmouth University Community Relations Taskforce and regularly attends the Conference on Student Government Associations (COSGA) at Texas A&M University.
There are 12 committees within the Senate that include: Academic Affairs, Campus and Safety, Finance, Residential Life and Health Services, Public Relations, Student Affairs, Big Event SGA Auction, General Members, Human and Community Relations, Elections, Events Programming and Website.
SGA's mission is to promote the health and welfare of Monmouth University's student body. The Senate meets at 2:30 p.m. every Wednesday during the academic year on the 3rd floor of the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. Meetings are open to the Monmouth University community
