The purpose of the Student Government Association is to represent and safeguard the interests of students. It is a political organization providing students with an avenue for action on matters pertaining to student rights and welfare. Although discipline is the legal responsibility of the administration, the principle of student government is fully supported by the administration and faculty.
All students attending UNCP automatically become members of the Student Government Association. SGA functions through its elected representatives and is subject to the general administrative authority of its sponsor, the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs. Every full-time student who has at least a 2.5 cumulative average (on a 4.0 system) has the privilege of seeking positions of leadership in the organization by either appointment or election.
The Student Government Association is elected by the student body each spring according to the Constitution and By Laws of the organization.
