The Student Government Association formulates an annual budget from
- student activity fee proceeds,
- directs student elections (SGA Officers) and
- holds regular meetings to promote the interests of students.
Students are involved in College decision making through their participation on standing committees of the College and ad hoc committees appointed by the College senior leadership team. Their role is to share and discuss views held by students pertaining to any particular topic.
The jurisdiction of the SGA is to represent the student body as outlined in the SGA Constitution. Although the SGA does not participate in the governance of the College, the SGA president does serve as a nonvoting member of the College Board of Trustees.
Student Activity Fee
The SGA organizes many activities to broaden your student experiences, utilizing your student activity fees.
Activities include Fall and Spring Fling, plays, musical concerts, a writing contest, and holiday activities. A Senior College Fair, held in the fall, is designed for students planning to transfer to four-year colleges.
Elected or appointed positions include four executive officers, and five first-year and five second-year delegates. All curriculum students of the College are eligible to be represented through the student government.
One of the best ways to enrich your experience as a student at RCC is to participate in the numerous activities planned throughout the year.
Review your Student Handbook for activities planned for the academic year and watch for signs posted around campus directing you to these events.
