Student Government Association (SGA)

Student Government Association (SGA) is present at all six Central Piedmont campuses and works primarily for the interests and needs of students of those campuses. For more information on SGA at each campus, please contact the student life coordinator at your campus.

About SGA

Review the SGA constitution (PDF) for bylaws and guidelines for the Central Piedmont Student Government Association. SGA promotes:

  • student advocacy
  • budget recommendation
  • student events
  • support of student organizations
  • community service

SGA organization:

  • The SGA Executive Committee (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Information Officer) officers represent needs and interests of all Central Piedmont students, college-wide. They are elected each year in April and serve a full-year term.
  • SGA Senate: SGA senators have a presence on each campus and are appointed by the SGA executive committee. The number of senators on each campus is determined by the curriculum student enrollment at each campus, and senators represent the needs and interests of students at each respective campus.
  • SGA representatives are volunteers at each campus and are appointed by the senators at the campus. There is no determined limit to the number of representatives at a particular campus, and representatives assist senators in meeting the needs of students at a particular campus.

The SGA executive committee Office is on Central Campus in the Worrell Building, Room 1114. You can contact the SGA executive committee at 704.330.6751 or sga@cpcc.edu.
