Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA) at Massachusetts College of Art and Design enhances student experience by providing a forum in which their voices may be heard. Through open meetings, students can promote and advance matters concerning their community. The SGA provides students with a vital link to the faculty, and administration. In addition to acting as a framework, in which other student organizations build upon, SGA ensures the continued advancement of an engaging student experience.

All MassArt students are encouraged to attend SGA Full Council meetings. Full Council meetings are held every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Kennedy Conference Room (2nd Floor Kennedy).
Getting involvedStudents are encouraged to be actively involved at MassArt and to make a difference in their collegiate experience. MassArt is a diverse community and SGA works to meet the varying needs of the study body by funding over forty student-run organizations through student fees. All SGA funded programs are open to the entire college community. As a MassArt student, you are already a member. Getting involved is as easy as attending meetings or joining an organization.
Student organizations sponsor social, recreational, educational and cultural activities that are geared toward the interests of the student body. SGA also supports student galleries for undergraduate exhibitions. Each organization has two representatives who attend the weekly SGA Full Council meetings in addition to meeting separately with members of their own organization. All organizations welcome new members and adhere to the college's anti-discrimination and anti-hazing policies.
Attending SGA and Student Development sponsored events are one of the many ways to network at MassArt. Participating in SGA offers a chance for you to meet students, administrators and faculty. SGA is a powerful organization capable of creating change. For those interested in joining an existing organization or wishing to form a new organization, contact any SGA E-Board member or the SGA Advisor.
Another way to be actively involved at MassArt is to join one of the many governance committees. All governance committees have faculty, administration and student representation and are committed to steering the future of the institution. Contact Laura Flynn for more information about getting involved with a governance committee.
