Getting Involved


Join the Delegate Program!

The Delegate Program is a leadership development program coordinated by the SGA via the Secretary of Delegate Affairs. Delegates are mentored by current members of the SGA, participate in events & activities hosted by the SGA, act as another channel for student concerns to reach the SGA, and participate in bi-weekly leadership & professional development workshops. Delegates are able to “dip their toes in the water” and learn what it means to be in SGA before running for an elected or appointed position. Any questions? Please email
