Purpose of the SGA
SGA Positions Available
Academic representatives also work with academic affairs, clubs and ethnic affairs, international students and foreign affairs, political awareness, public relations, students with disabilities, sustainability, and part-time and evening students.
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.
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
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.
