Student Government Association (SGA)

As official representatives of the Guttman student body, the SGA provides guidance to the administration, faculty, and staff on all student-related matters. The SGA disburses student activity fees, and charters student clubs and other student organizations and advocates for students’ rights. The SGA includes student officers and senators elected by their peers in April of each year.

The SGA also recruits students to join committees to serve in advisory roles to influence important decisions that are made at the College. These include search committees, graduation, tech fee, disciplinary, and Community Days committees.

Guttman students can participate in the many conferences and workshops sponsored by the City University of New York.

Also, the talented faculty, staff and students at Guttman host numerous workshops on campus each term. The vast range of topical areas ensures that there is something of interest for all participants.
