Student Government Association

Rutgers School of Health Professions is creating its inaugural Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA offers students the opportunity to make the most of their college experience by representing the student body as an advocate and a leader.

Students involved with the SGA will have the chance to learn important management, communication, and interpersonal skills. Board members will collaborate as a team, providing a forum for School of Health Professions students' interests and concerns.  The SGA is expected to work closely with Student Affairs to address student needs, and help plan important school-wide events. 

The SGA provides a path to involve students in initiatives that will enhance interdisciplinary experiences among students, and further the school’s mission. Students will have the opportunity to plan community service activities, and participate in trainings to develop leadership and interpersonal communication skills.

Student Government Association Important Dates:

July 21st - SHP's Welcome Session- Meet with SGA Representatives to learn more about SHP's SGA!


If you are a faculty or staff member and need to recommend a student for an SGA position, then please complete the following recommendation form:

Please contact Fae Cushing at if you have any questions about the Student Government Association.

You may also contact the Office Student Affairs at if you have any questions or comments.
