What is SGA?

The Student Government Association exists to advocate widely and deeply felt Wright State student interests; this is accomplished through lobbying the administration at our university. As designated by the Board of Trustees, the House of Representatives is responsible for officially communicating the collective viewpoint of the student body with regard to any aspect of university policy or operation. The Senate is responsible for appointing students to university committees, to recommend allocations of the student activity funds, to represent student interests, and to serve as a conduit of information from the university to the student body. Student Government shall also represent the student body on state and national issues of interest to students.
