SGA Mission

We, the Student Government Association of Medaille College, are the official representative voice of the student body. We bridge the communication between students and the collective Medaille community by creating opportunities for student engagement and facilitating a positive college experience.

What We Do

The primary purpose of this organization shall be to serve as the official representative organization of the student body; to serve as the liaison between the student body and faculty, administration, and the Office of Student Development; to preserve and enhance the projects and activities which contribute to the quality of student life; to supervise student organizations and student activities on campus with the assistance of the Student Involvement Center; to protect the rights of the student as defined within the student handbook; and promote the general welfare of the student body. It is for the pursuit of these goals and for the promotion of the general welfare of the student body, that the students, with the consent and authorization of the President of Medaille College, establish this constitution.

As SGA’s newest committee, we hope to develop a working relationship with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and all academic divisions to ensure the best experience possible for Medaille students. Chaired by the SGA Vice President, we hope to address student concerns and questions regarding academic programs and policies, and serve as a liaison between faculty and the student body.
