The JMU Student Government Association is committed to helping it’s members grow as individuals and as leaders. This is accomplished by fostering a productive and inclusive environment that allows students to excel.
There are a few ways to join SGA:
- Elections: Elections take place at the beginning of the Fall semester and the end of the Spring semester. The Fall and Spring Minor elections allow JMU students to run for Class Council or Senator positions, whether for a college or for a residential area. The Spring Major elections elect the Student Body President, Student Body Vice President, Executive Treasurer and the Student Representative to the Board of Visitors.
- Applications: At the beginning of each semester and following elections, SGA accepts applications for At-Large Senators and Representatives. These positions are filled as seen fit by a committee. The current live application is available here.
- Executive Staff: Following Spring Major Elections, applications will be available to join the executive staff. These positions include Administrative Officer, Executive Assistant, Director of Communications, Contingency Liaison, and Parliamentarian.
