The purpose of the Student Government Association is to encourage meaningful participation in student activities, to represent and execute the student will, and to promote the general welfare of self-government. SGA members, who are elected by the student body, represent all BPCC students by providing input into College policies and College management. During the fall and spring semesters, the SGA members serve as the voice of advocacy for all students on the BPCC campus. Students are elected to serve as executive officers and representatives. Tuition waivers are available for executive officers only. Meetings are open to all currently-enrolled BPCC students. The SGA may hear recommendations from students.
