Student Leadership Opportunities


The Student Government Association of Central Arizona College (SGA) promotes student engagement in the college experience by sponsoring activities, offering programs, developing leadership potential, and coordinating clubs and organizations.  The association advocates student interests to the college administration and community at large.  The association is active at each campus of the college and serves about 5,500 students.

Association Leadership.  The association is led by thirteen students who are elected by their peers.  The president and vice-president are district-wide officers.  There are two senators for each of the Aravaipa, Maricopa, San Tan, Signal Peak, and Superstition Mountain campuses.  There is also a senator elected specifically to represent online students.  A full-time student engagement coordinator and part-time secretary provide advice, guidance, and support to the SGA.

Meetings.  Meetings are held twice a month and are conducted via teleconference or videoconference.  All meetings are open to the public.

Clubs and Organizations.  Each club or organization registers once per semester with the SGA.  Officially registered organizations are eligible to apply for funding.  See the Clubs and Organizations webpage for a listing of currently registered organizations.

The purpose of the Student Government Association of Central Arizona College (SGA) is to create opportunities and to unite us all as one.  We are the voice of students, and together we should inspire confidence, encouragement, and involvement within our communities.  By serving Central Arizona College, SGA generates a positive and rewarding experience for all those who attend CAC.
