Check out SGA's recruitment video to hear from some of our current members, and read below for more information on how to get involved!
Become a Senator:
One great way to get involved in Northeastern’s Student Government Association is by becoming a Senator, representing your academic college/school, or a student organization on campus!
As a Senator, you will be required to attend weekly Senate meetings and keep regular contact with the constituency that you represent. Your goal as a Senator is to inform members of the student body of the changes that are being made here at Northeastern, then advocate on their behalf to make sure the most important changes are prioritized and implemented with students’ best interest in mind. Senators serve as the voice of their constituents in the Association, which in turn is the liaison between the student body and the University Administration.
Become a Delegate:
The Student Government Association has several standing committees that complete valuable work for the student body. As a Standing Committee Delegate (or Delegate for short), your responsibilities are to attend one committee of your choice on a weekly basis, and complete an office hour each week on behalf of Committee as defined by its Chair. The Committees to choose from are as follows (please click on each link to learn more):
- Academic Affairs
- Communications and Events
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Elections Committee
- Student Affairs
- Student Services
To become a Standing Committee Delegate, fill out this form on OrgSync to submit your information to the Association. Please note that all committee meetings are open to the public – you are welcome to visit and try out committees to see what you’re interested in before formally becoming a Delegate. If you have any questions, please contact the Chief of Staff or the respective Committee Chair.
Become a Board Member:
Interested in sitting on one of the several boards within the Student Government Association? There are Board Member seats available on each of our boards through our application process. Being a Board Member is a great way to have a direct impact on the operations of SGA and the University as a whole. The Boards to choose from are as follows (please click on each link to learn more):
The applications for each Board are found at the bottom of each Board's page. All Boards accept applications on a rolling basis. After submitting the respective application, the Chair of the Board you applied to will review your application and get back to you.
SGA hires students as Office Assistants on a work-study basis. Office Assistants help with the day-to-day operations of the Association, including general office work, preparing for meetings and assisting with long-term projects. Students must have federal work-study to qualify.
