Student Government Association (SGA) promotes the responsibilities, rights and privileges that come with being a student at Mount St. Joseph University. SGA sponsors student activities, and advises the committee that distributes funds to campus organizations. Official campus clubs must register with SGA for approval.

The association represents student interests, and acts as a liaison between faculty, staff, and students. SGA encourages student representation on university committees, and welcomes representatives from all clubs to its weekly meetings.
