The mission of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to represent and serve all students attending GBC. SGA is the official voice through which students' opinions and concerns are expressed by acting as the students' representative. SGA emphasizes the importance of academic excellence and the total involvement of every student.

Student Government Elections; Become A Student Leader!

Elections are upon us already! Check out the new Election packet in both Adobe PDF format and in MS Word format!

Any student enrolled in at least one credit at GBC is a member of the SGA, with the rights to vote in student elections, participate in all SGA sponsored activities, and attend all open SGA meetings.

Officers of the SGC advocate for all students and provide input directly to the NSHE Board of Regents. Participating in student government is an incredible educational opportunity, and it looks wonderful on a resume. It's easy to participate. Brief information is provided below. For details, consult the SGA Constitution in MS Word format.
