Durham Tech Student Government Association (SGA)

The Student Government Association is the voice of the community college student. The organization provides input to the College’s administration on decisions affecting students, makes decisions regarding the allocation of student event funds, and plans student activities and events. The SGA also approves and provides support for student organizations. Student Senators are part of the organization’s makeup to represent academic departments and other student organizations.

The SGA meets monthly to discuss campus concerns, regulate campus activities, review or create procedures involving student organizations and activities, and responds to campus regulations that affect the student body as a whole.

SGA Response to COVID-19

While we continue to maintain social distance, we want to be sure you know that your SGA is still available. Please feel free to contact us if there is any way we can help during these challenging times.

The Durham Tech community has always been known to do great things, and now we are now learning to do great things…at a distance…in ways we may not have previously considered. As a member of this community, we want your input on how we can best engage students remotely. If you have an idea, please take a moment to drop it in our Electronic Suggestion Box.

In the meantime, we want to hear from you and know how you’re staying connected to others in your community. If you’re on social media, we invite you to post pictures, videos, or thoughts and include #DTConnected.

When you want to (re)connect to your SGA, reach out in whichever way works best for you:

  • Email us about anything on your mind.
  • Your feedback is important to us, so let us know your ideas, suggestions, concerns, or questions by adding a message to our Electronic Suggestion Box.
  • Join us at a virtual event. We will continue to add events as they are scheduled. If you are unable to join us live, we will record each event and make them available for you to view at your own convenience.

Join

The SGA Constitution outlines several ways that you can become involved as a Senator. Attend a meeting and an SGA advisor will explain your options.

Meetings

The SGA meets on a weekly basis, usually on Wednesdays. Meetings are open to all students, faculty, and staff, and everyone who is interested is encouraged to attend. Check the meeting and activity calendar for the schedule.

Governance

The SGA operates under the guidance of its constitution. This document contains everything you need to know about a Senator's responsibilities, duties, and obligations to the organization.

For more information

Contact the SGA advisor Gilbert Umberger for further information. Students may also contact Senators directly during the fall and spring semesters by emailing sga@durhamtech.edu. or you can post a question to the SGA Facebook page.
