ABOUT THE STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
Established in 2014, the Student Government Association (SGA) acts as the students’ voice to the University’s leadership, campus community and public at large. In order to provide a positive college experience to all students at Florida Polytechnic University, the association approves funds, regulates campus-sponsored clubs and advocates for students and their rights.
The Student Government Association will:
- Create an open dialogue with the student body and effectively voice student concerns.
- Advocate for student interests and policies concerning campus life.
- Provide and encourage leadership opportunities through student organizations and activities.
The Student Government Association aims to create a student-led environment that encourages student unity, diversity, respect and integrity.
The Florida Polytechnic University Student Government Association is composed of an executive, judicial and legislative branch.
The Executive Branch includes the Student Body President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and an Executive Cabinet. The Cabinet includes various Executive Committees as appointed by the Student Body President. They are the students’ voice and liaison between the students and the administration.
The Legislative Branch is comprised of senators represented by class years, degree programs, and on- and off-campus students. The Senate enacts statutes, allocates funds and oversees campus organizations. The Legislative Branch will grow as the University grows.
The Judicial Branch is the Supreme Court, comprised of a Chief Justice and six Associate Justices. The seven Justices are appointed by the Student Body President and confirmed by the Senate. The Supreme Court hears student concerns, helps conduct all SGA elections and holds trials for officials who breach the SGA Constitution.
A Florida Polytechnic University Student Constitution, enacted in February 2015, is a dynamic document that establishes the Student Government Association, its mission, powers and duties. With the signing of the Constitution, the Florida Poly SGA is formally operated by the students and for the students, a highly visible testament to democracy at the university level.
