Our Commitment to Progress
The Student Government Association is constantly working on projects and initiatives that address important issues within the college and be an advocate for the student body. Take a look at some of our past projects to learn about what the SGA had achieved historically and also some of our current projects to stay up to date on what we're up to!
Anti Racism Webinar
Dr. Warren Chalken PhD and SGA Judiciary Board will conduct a webinar to educate and offer resources that will create an environment where all students and staffs of all ethnic groups feel safe in our community and increase the student body's sensitivity towards discrimination.
Active Minds Chapter
The Active Minds Chapter began as an SGA initiative to raise awareness and advocate for mental health for students. Now, it is an established club for all BCC students to take part in!
COVID-19 Food Donations
In the summer of 2020 during the first outbreak of COVID-19, the SGA was able to donate several meals to the Valley Hospital as a thank you to our brave front-liners!
Voting Seat for the Alumni Trustee
Recent graduates from Bergen Community College have an opportunity to contribute their student experiences to the College Leadership by running for an important elected leadership position – Alumni Trustee.
The Alumni Trustee position allows a newly graduated student to sit on the Bergen Community College Board of Trustees, to articulate and voice the needs of the students and to vote on issues.
