Every student at Ithaca College has benefited from the services offered by the Student Government Association. Whether it’s educating its campus about the importance of voting, placing students on staff-run college wide committees, or assisting with important causes, SGA utilizes many “under-the-radar” strategies to serve as the bridge between the Ithaca College administration and the IC student body.
The Student Government Association is one of four elements of the shared governance of Ithaca College, along with the administration, faculty council, and staff council. And although SGA is recognized as an OSEMA student organization, the group is self-governing as well. SGA’s executive board consists of student body president Dominick Recckio, four vice presidents running departments such as academic affairs and communications, a Senate Chair, and a Chief of Staff.
