Student Government Association

What is SGA?

SGA stands for Student Government Association. SGA is here to be the voice of JBU students and to provide communication between them, the administration and faculty. It is our job to hear the student perspective, address concerns and pursue projects at their request in order to better the JBU experience. SGA Senators not only meet as a large group every week but many also sit on university committees, representing the student body to administration and faculty. SGA also oversees the approval and funding of all JBU sanctioned clubs.
