SGA exists to give you, the student, a voice in what happens at Lipscomb. The Student Government Association (SGA) helps sustain the spirit and morale of students, serves as an advocate for the concerns of students, and serves as a catalyst for student academic, social, and spiritual growth, while promoting the Christian values and principles of the university.
The students on SGA work with the faculty and staff of Lipscomb University to enhance the student experience. Past student involvement has helped make Lipscomb an environment that is not only educational, but enjoyable. SGA determines most events Lipscomb clubs and organizations coordinate. The diverse body of members on SGA help promote and decide what activities and changes happen on campus.
Membership for SGA is open to all dedicated and responsible students who have a desire for involvement and personal growth. SGA includes 32 members: five senators from each class, eight from the student body-at-large, and four executive officers that complete the senate. The purposes of the SGA are to promote all phases of student life and to ensure a communication link between the student body and the university administration.
There are four committees on SGA that focus on different aspects of the university: Academic, Spiritual, Social, and Communication. All of these committees ensure that the members of SGA are working hard to enhance every interest of our student body. Some of the events and happenings sponsored by SGA in the past consist of:
- Paint the Herd
- Tau Phi Cowboy Show
- Campus Ministry retreats
- Theatre Tickets
- Athletic Events
- Monthly student activities
- Partnering with Student Activities Board
The Student Government Association holds their Senate Meetings every other Monday during the semester at 7:30 p.m. in Club 1891 by the mezzanine area of Bennett Campus Center. All are welcome to attend.
Serve as an organized voice for the student body of Lipscomb University, sustain the spirit and morale of students; serve as an advocate for the concerns of those students, and serve as a catalyst for students' academic, social, and spiritual growth, while promoting the Christian values and principles of the university. — SGA Mission Statement
