The Student Government Association (SGA) is a not-for-profit corporation serving the students of Montclair State University. We oversee more than 100 on-campus organizations, including groups for public service, culture, arts, hobbies, sports and greek life. Our aim is to enrich your college experience by giving you opportunities to connect with others, explore new interests and lead your own clubs. The SGA is here to enhance student life at Montclair State University.
The SGA was formed in 1925 as the “Student Council” and became a non-profit organization in 1934 known as the Student Government Association. The SGA is independent from the University and is composed of three separate but equal bodies: The Executive Branch, The Legislative Branch and The Judicial Branch.
