Student Government Association

The Gwynedd Mercy University Student Government Association (SGA) sees our mission as one in which we must provide services for the university, the students it represents, and the local communities by using our creativity, integrity, honesty, and enthusiasm. We feel that it is essential to provide a common communication link between the students, faculty, and administration, be a voice for the students as a whole, and inform the students about efforts of the SGA. 

SGA aims to be a diverse organization representing all individuals on campus that wish to have a voice in government. Lastly, we are a supportive organization for all of the student groups on campus and act as a vehicle of change on behalf of all students.

SGA strives to be accepting of all people, encourage communication, continuously improve ourselves and our community, and create a more unified campus community. With strong leadership qualities and caring hearts, we the SGA, serve the Gwynedd Mercy University community.
