What is the SGA?

The SGA is a vehicle for involvement in the college and acts as the official student representative body. The Student Government Association serves as the voice of the student body on issues concerning campus life and participates in shaping policies and student regulations.

All credit students, both full- and part-time, are members of the SGA. This governing body was created to enhance the quality of student life and the success of students through participation in social, cultural, educational and recreational opportunities.

Program Board

The Program Board consists of the SGA vice president, SGA senators, and members at large. The Program Board is responsible for programming events and activities for all segments of HCC's student population. Membership is open to all full- and part-time students. Members meet once per month and are responsible for planning and organizing student activities. Students interested in planning activities are welcome to join.
