"Student Affairs Cares"

The Student Government Association (SGA) is a crucial part of student life at Jackson State University. The SGA serves as the voice of the student body, representing their interests and concerns to the administration. SGA provides students with an opportunity to become involved in their university community and to make a positive impact on their campus.

The primary function of the SGA is to serve as a liaison between the students and the administration. It provides a platform for students to voice their opinions, suggestions, and concerns, and works to address these issues through effective communication and collaboration with the university administration. SGA also plays an important role in shaping university policy, through initiatives and projects aimed at improving student life and the overall campus community.

In addition to advocating for student rights and interests, the SGA also serves as a resource for students, providing information on university programs and services, and offering support and guidance on a wide range of topics. SGA also plays a vital role in promoting school spirit and building community on campus through various events and activities.
