NYIT's Student Government Association (SGA) is the official voice of the student body. The SGA advocates on behalf of student interests -- academic, cultural, and social. It is charged with working with the college’s faculty and administration to improve every facet of campus life. In addition, the SGA oversees the budgeting process for all recognized student clubs and organizations, and supports a variety of campus-wide events.
There are two main branches of the SGA—an executive board and a legislative senate. Student representatives from a variety of disciplines are elected annually. Want to know more? Check out the SGA constitution (pdf). If you would like to become a member of the SGA please fill out this application for consideration. If you have questions, concerns, or want to get involved in campus life at NYIT, the SGA is here for you! For more information, please email any of the SGA members.
