In addition to overseeing clubs, SGA works with faculty, campus ministry, and the university’s administration to represent students in all aspects of life at CUW and make sure the student voice is heard.

For information about SGA clubs, or if you’re interested in getting involved with SGA, contact members at SGA@cuw.edu.
