Student Government Association
There’s no better place to hone your leadership skills than in the Student Government Association, the largest student-run advocacy and policy group on Widener’s Main Campus.
The SGA is all about empowerment. If you have a problem, bring it up at one of the SGA’s frequent meetings. If you’re looking for funding for a program, make a request with SGA — it administers disbursement of the Student Activity Fee. If you’re looking for a way to make a difference on campus, you can choose from several initiatives.
The SGA is the main liaison between students and the university’s administration. The President of SGA meets frequently with President Harris to discuss issues of interest to students and the entire Widener community.
