Student Government Association
Loyola University New Orleans’ Student Government Association promises to promote student welfare, establish an effective and representative student leadership body, exchange transparent ideas between students and the administration, advocate for student interest and needs, encourage students to be educated on important issues that impact our university, and to assume our position in SGA with the fullest power, and responsibility to lead a trustworthy self-government.
Loyola University Student Government Association is an autonomous entity and operates in the form and standing of a university department. It is the principle representative voice of the student body that protect student rights, articulate student responsibilities, assist in the establishment, formation, and application of institutional policy and procedure, aid in the academic and social development, grant charter recognition to student organizations, budget and allocate the revenue received from student fees for student services and organizations and provide those services which are deemed useful and necessary to the student body.
Our vision is to enhance students daily experience by improving conditions that lead to student success and preserving student rights. In addition to maintaining collaborative professional relationships with faculty and administrators and advocating student perspectives that are considered at University decision makings.
Equity & Inclusion Committee:

The committee will plan programs highlighting equity issues and educate participants in how to be change agents. Interested in being on the Equity and Inclusion Committee?

The University Programming Board:
The University Programming Board (UPB) is the official programming board under the Student Government Association for Loyola University New Orleans.
