The SGA is intended to provide for active student self-government; to encourage mutual respect among students, faculty, and administrators; to promote the involvement of students in community programs and projects; to provide social and recreational outlets for all students; and to function as an organized and realistic laboratory through which students may acquire and "try out" those skills necessary for living in and improving their communities. Calhoun Community College encourages student participation in institutional decision-making. The SGA represents student views to the college administration through representation on the Discipline Committee as well as other special appointments. All students should take an active part in the SGA by (1) voting in every election; (2) taking the initiative to run for offices; and (3) conveying ideas and/or requests to elected student representatives.
The Decatur campus SGA office is located in MSA room 120. The Huntsville campus SGA office is located in the Sparkman Building, Room 315. All students are urged to meet with their representatives and to take an active part in the affairs of the student government. Officer positions are President, Vice President, Secretary, Public Relations, Parliamentarian, Senator, and Campus Coordinator. The purpose of the SGA is to represent every student as a direct line of communication to staff, faculty, and administration. The SGA operates under the direction of the Student Engagement Coordinator and the Vice President of Student Services.
