Great Basin College enriches people's lives by providing student-centered, post-secondary education to rural Nevada. Educational, cultural, and related economic needs of the multicounty service area are met through programs of university transfer, applied science and technology, business and industry partnerships, developmental education, community service, and student support services in conjunction with certificates and associate and select baccalaureate degrees.
GBC is a comprehensive community college that provides educational opportunities to over 3,800 students across 86,500 square miles, in ten of Nevada's largest counties bordering five states. The main campus in Elko is home to an educational community that attracts students interested in a residential college experience. Satellite facilities are located in over a dozen communities across the college's service area.
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.
