Student Government Association

Welcome to the Monmouth University Student Government Association!


The Student Government Association (SGA) is the governing body of all student clubs and organizations at Monmouth University. There are currently 120+ student clubs and organizations, with more being recognized annually by SGA. 

SGA is responsible for overseeing annual funding to all eligible clubs and organizations and providing financial assistance to groups and individuals who wish to sponsor a special program or event. 

The Senate sponsors numerous programs annually, including The Big Event, Homecoming, The Giving Tree, and Springfest. 

SGA is actively involved in the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in New Jersey (AICUNJ). Every year, SGA members have the opportunity to attend the annual Conference on Student Government Associations (COSGA) at Texas A&M University. In 2024, Monmouth SGA was awarded COSGA’s “Outstanding Student Government of the Year”.

There are 14 committees within SGA that include: Academic Affairs, Club Approval, Community Relations, Elections & Recruitment, Homecoming, Marketing, Philanthropy, Senator Engagement, Specialty Funding, Springfest, Student Affairs, and the NEST, along with two ad-hoc committees which include the Giving Tree and Annual Funding. 

The Senate meets every Wednesday during the academic year at 2:45 in the SGA Office on the 3rd floor of the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. Meetings are open to the Monmouth University community, as every Monmouth student holds the title of General Member within SGA.
