    Benefits of Being an SGA Governor
    Monthly stipend, personal office space in the SGA suite, invaluable leadership experience and countless networking opportunities.

    Purpose of the FSDC
    The FSDC conducts disciplinary hearings involving students who are charged with violating the various academic and social rules of conduct.

    FSDC Positions
    Six positions are available for election. On any given case, two of the six students are chosen in rotation to preside over FSDC hearings alongside two faculty and a chairperson.

    Duties of FSDC Student Members

    • Listen to testimonies and review evidence from all parties involved in a disciplinary hearing.
    • Work with other FSDC members to make a decision regarding the guilt of the accused student.
    • If a student is found guilty, the FSDC can recommend a variety of disciplinary sanctions ranging from warnings to suspension from the college.
    • If a student is found not guilty, the FSDC recommends that the charges be dismissed.

    Example of a Real FSDC Case
    A student received a failing grade from a professor. The following semester the student was placed on academic probation. The student saw the professor the following semester and assaulted the professor. The student blamed the professor for recommending academic probation, when in reality it was done automatically by the Registrar's Office, based on the total amount of courses that failing grades were received.

    Benefits of Being an FSDC Student Member
    While the service is minimum, similar to jury duty, it is viewed as valuable community service and is highly recognized by the City University of New York.

    For more information on FSDC, please contact Arturo Luis Merchant, student judiciary officer, at 718-482-5180, luism@lagcc.cuny.edu or in Room C-317J.
