The Student Government Association is the highest governing student body at Pitt-Johnstown. It serves as the official representative of the full-time students to the University administration.
Responsibilities and activities include:
Each student has a voice in the Government through participation in campus-wide elections of Officers and Senators. President, Vice President and Senator-at-Large elections take place every spring (with Freshman Senators being elected in October). Membership is open to any full-time student who meets the University Relations Committee requirements and presents a petition containing the appropriate amount of student signatures.
Complete information on election procedures is available in the Student Government Association Office, 151 Student Union Building, 814-269-7087, or in the Office of Student Life.
Activity in Student Government Association is not limited to elected members. Students interested in serving in some capacity should contact any Student Senator. Meetings of the Student Senate are open to members of the student body, faculty and administration.
