HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (May 12, 2014) – A new group of elected representatives was sworn into the Student Government Association (SGA) at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) last month. Fourteen will serve on the SGA's executive board, while the remaining 26 will serve on the SGA senate.

"I'm really excited by the caliber of students who ran for and were chosen to serve on the SGA for the upcoming academic year," says Nandish Dayal, a nursing and chemistry double major who will be serving a second term as president. "And I'm very much looking forward to building on all of the positive changes we laid the groundwork for this past year."

To ensure adequate representation, each of the university's five colleges and each class year has a designated number of seats; there is also one graduate seat. These, in turn, are all overseen by an executive board consisting of a president, vice president, vice president of finance, director of organizational funding, a consul, a scribe, four program coordinators, a faculty liaison, a media director, a disability support liaison, a parliamentarian, and a health and safety officer.

The SGA's primary responsibility is to advocate on behalf of UAH's students and work with the faculty, staff, and administration to address and resolve any issues that impact the student experience on campus. Pursuant to that, the association also sponsors a number of programs and initiatives to instill a sense of community and campus involvement. These include Trunk or Treat, the Reach for the Sky annual balloon launch, Higher Ed Day, the Big Event, and the ChargerCycle bike-share program.
