The Student Government Association (SGA) is the official governing body of nearly 6,000 undergraduate students at Azusa Pacific University. It exists to represent the interests of students to the administration on various and relevant campus issues.
SGA is comprised of 26 students, each of which has either been elected by the APU student body, or appointed by those that have been elected. SGA aims to continually improve the APU student experience by providing a listening ear to the needs of the student body, by meeting with numerous offices on campus to present these needs, and then going into action to make a positive change on campus.
SGA has been in existence at APU since 1945, although it has been referred to as many different things over the years. Yet, in the school’s 116 years of developing bright and ambitious scholars, it has always taken the input that SGA has to offer, very seriously. The results of such a relationship between SGA and the administration has been extremely fruitful for both parties.
APU continues to be a place that fosters the development of young scholars with a Christian perspective. They provide a listening ear to students that, in turn, is represented by SGA. SGA’s purpose on this campus is a unique one, as it functions around the idea that students need to be heard, as well as provide communication services to students and to the university.
