The Student Government Association (S.G.A.) elects officers who work closely with the Academic Dean for Student Life and/or Academic Dean and the Administration in matters of interest to students. The purpose of the Student Government Association is to provide opportunities for student self-governing. The S.G.A. is a voice for the student body in matters of concern to the seminary, and it provides opportunities to aid the administration wherever possible. There is a student representative on the Board of Trustees, students participate in major committees of the seminary, and students are also involved in the broader community through Supervised Ministry placements and class projects. Students have played a crucial role in the seminary's growth and development in recent years.
