SGA Eligibility and Term of Service
Enrolled Roseman students as well as incoming students (who will be on campus by July 1), are eligible to self-nominate for an office in the SGA.
SGA Officers are elected the spring prior to the start of his/her term of service beginning on July 1 of each year and ending on June 30th of the following year (or his/her graduation date, whichever comes sooner).
The following academic years provide the most flexibility toward participation in SGA (although any academic year is welcomed):
- Dental: D2 and D3 years
- MBA: variable (meetings could fall over lunch)
- Nursing: ABSN, N1 and N2 years (although due to prominent rotations off campus, meetings via phone could be necessary)
- Pharmacy: P2 year (P3 year is possible, although meetings could fall over lunch time)
The SGA typically meets 2-3 times throughout the academic year, although the level of involvement is based on the officers. It is recommended that students consider their availability during the academic year for which he/she might be serving, as meetings are typically at noon or 3:15pm. Although it is possible for an officer
SGA election for officers is held in the spring of each academic year. If interested in running for one of the offices below, please view the SGA Bylaws and annual duties specified above. Elections will be advertised in the student newsletter for those interested in self-nomination.
SGA Self-Nomination Process
Students interested in SGA self-nominate by creating a short statement (maybe 2-3 sentences) stating why he/she is interested in serving). This statement will be included on a voting ballot that will be viewed by all students, so please be professional. Again, the SGA term of service begins July 1 and ends June 30th of the next year. If you are interested, please email your self-nomination statement for an SGA Office to email@example.com by May 26, 2017.
The SGA constitution is the fundamental principles that govern its operation. The bylaws establish the specific rules of guidance by which the group is to function. All but the most informal groups should have their basic structure and methods of operation in writing.
Officers each year have an opportunity to make suggested updates to the Consitution/By-Laws. Any suggested updates are taken to the Vice-President for Student Affairs for consideration, and if approved, are placed into effect immediately.
Benefits of Participation
