The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to represent and safeguard interest of the students. It is basically a political organization providing students with an avenue for action matters pertaining to student rights and welfare. Although discipline is the legal responsibility of the administration, the principle of student government is fully supported by the administration and faculty.
All students attending UNCP automatically become members of the Student Government Association. SGA functions through its elected representatives and is subject to the general administrative authority of its sponsor, the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.
