The Student Government Association (SGA) represents the student body, upholds student rights, and provides students with the opportunity for training and experience in democratic government. The SGA does not discriminate against any member of the student body for reasons of race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, creed, disability status, or religious beliefs. The SGA is concerned with the development, welfare and governance of all students, student organizations, and student groups at the Grant Campus. It upholds the policies of the Suffolk County Community College Board of Trustees, the Suffolk Community College Association, the county and state legislatures and the State University of New York. The SGA subscribes to the college motto: Vision, Wisdom, Excellence.
Each semester a Student Government Association Executive Board is formed to review current operating procedures relating to student organizations, make suggestions and recommendations to the Office of Campus Activities, coordinate and vote on requests from recognized student organizations which apply for funding beyond their base allocation, and report on upcoming events to be placed in the next month's calendar of events. Officers are elected during the spring term each year. Any vacancies are filled in the fall.
