Student Government Association members 2018

Student Government Association

The Student Government Association (SGA) is an organization of elected students who represent all Bellarmine University students to the campus community. The SGA is not the same as a high school student council, where emphasis is often on planning social events. Your SGA is actively involved in improving and enhancing the quality of student life at Bellarmine. SGA members work closely with administrators, faculty, and staff providing input that may influence many administrative decisions directly affecting students. SGA members are committed to addressing student concerns. Your representatives act as liaisons between students and faculty to ensure Your Voice, Your Bellarmine, Your SGA!

SGA Mission Statement

We the people of SGA will serve as a primary liaison between the students, faculty, and administration, providing a strong student voice. SGA will weigh all perspectives through positive student leadership. We will strive to create more campus unity at Bellarmine.
