Student Government

The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to encourage meaningful participation in student activities, to represent and execute the student will, and to promote the general welfare of self-government. SGA members, who are elected by the student body, represent all BPCC students by providing input into College policies and College management. During the fall and spring semesters, the SGA members serve as the voice of advocacy for all students on the BPCC campus. In addition, SGA members assist with events and activities sponsored by the Office of Student Life. Students are elected to serve as representatives or executive officers (President, Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer). Tuition waivers are available for executive officers only. The SGA meets every Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. in the Office of Student Life (F-220). Meetings are open to all currently-enrolled BPCC students. SGA members are required to attend.
