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.


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.


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.


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.
