Rutgers School of Criminal Justice

Student Government Association (SGA)

The School of Criminal Justice Student Government Association (SGA) is a university organization run by graduate students. The SGA is dedicated to upholding a strong peer community, while serving as a liaison between graduate students, faculty and the administration. The SGA works directly with graduate students, faculty and the administration in an effort to open lines of communication and establish an environment conducive for academic and personal growth for graduate students. Specifically, the SGA has four main objectives:

  • Actively sponsoring and promoting both on- and off-campus activities and events for graduate students.
  • Organizing fundraising events to generate funding for SGA sponsored events or for donations to specific organizations.
  • Act as a medium for graduate students to express their opinions to the faculty and administration.
  • Work directly with the faculty and administration to organize professional development sessions and guest speakers for graduate students.

It is through the aforementioned objectives that the SGA helps to establish a sense of community not only for graduate students, but for the entire School of Criminal Justice.
