Elected by the student body, the Student Government Association ensures student self- governance. The association represents the diverse interests of the Converse community and provides a link between the student body and the University administration. The Student Senate is an instrumental part of SGA and serves as a deliberating team to evaluate, inform, discuss, research, and establish solutions to student and campus concerns. There are over 30 SGA-funded organizations that exist to involve and to serve the student body. A yearly student activities fee includes, but is not restricted to, class dues, school calendar, yearbook, class ring, and admission to select programs and events presented by the Student Government Association and the Converse Activities Board.
