STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Government Association (SGA) is the elected student government at Kansas Wesleyan University (KWU). Some of the principles of the organization, outlined in part in the Preamble of the SGA Constitution are: self-determination, self-reliance, independent thought and action, and civic leadership development. The SGA serves KWU by providing a vehicle for student advocacy through the Student Senate, which is the representative body of the SGA.
Opportunities exist for interested students to become involved in the SGA by serving as Senators from the residence halls, the athletic department, APS/MBA programs, or any of the member organizations. Member organizations and clubs provide great opportunities for involvement, fun, growth and resume building. These clubs currently include but are not limited to Art Club, Alpha Chi, Biology Club, Chemistry Club, International Student Organization, KNEA-SP, Phi Alpha Theta (History), SNO (Nurses), SSDP, Sport & Exercise Science, E-Coyote / E-Sports, Drama Club (under revision), KKWU/NewsDesk, NAFME, FCA, Coyote Sports Network, Multi-Cultural Student Union and GRE club.
In addition, interested students have the opportunity to serve as representatives on the various university committees, or as SGA elected officials.
The SGA also offers activity programming on campus through the Coyote Activities Board (CAB). The CAB is charged with coordinating, leading, and administering all activities that are offered by the SGA. Some of the traditional activities have included parts of Freshman Orientation, Homecoming, and the Luau. Opportunities also exist for interested students to become involved with the CAB through both the Student Senate and through volunteer service.
