The mission of LCCC’s SGA is to connect, represent, guide and advocate for the students of LCCC, by informing, empowering, bestowing knowledge and improving student recognition on campus.

The senate makes recommendations for changes and improvements to the administration. Goals are accomplished through committee meetings; SGA committees include: Executive Council, Student Fee Allocation, Graduation, Diversity, Food Service Advisory, Visibility, College Community Center, Service, Student Conduct, College Council, and ad hoc committees as needed.

What is the time commitment?

Quorum meetings are mandatory meetings Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:15-1pm.
