The Student Government Association serves as the representative voice of the student body. Student opinions may be expressed at meetings of the Association and these ideas, suggestions or concerns can be submitted for discussion through the SGA office. Issues will be taken into consideration and addressed with the Vice President of Student Services and the President of LIT.
The SGA also offers each student an opportunity to promote, support and participate in a well-rounded student life program. This allows students to become accustomed to interacting with LITs diverse population of students. It also helps students connect with a variety of student organizations on campus, as well as year round student organized events.
The SGA is presided over by an Executive Board consisting of a President, Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer and one Representative at Large which are elected in a general election each spring semester. All students are encouraged to attend SGA meetings or stop by the SGA office in the Cecil Beeson Building Room 105 to learn more.
The Lamar Institute of Technology SGA Executive Board members also represent LIT during quarterly meetings held by the Texas State University System Board of Regents. The SGA Presidents and Vice Presidents from each of the eight universities within the system are members of the Student Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB functions as a cooperative association among TSUS component institutions for exchanging information and sharing programs that will benefit all Texas State University System members. To view more information on the SAB, follow the link below.
