Student Government Association
The Student Government Association (SGA) works to establish firm communication between all college stakeholders, to assess problems, make positive improvements, and coordinate changes within the college. The SGA is the advocate for the Albright College student body, a liaison between students and college administration, and the representative of our students to the Albright College Board of Trustees. The SGA is a proactive body providing opportunities for leadership development, involvement, and personal growth within the Albright College community. It promotes student involvement and is a forum that student clubs and organizations may approach for assistance, encouragement, and support.
