FAQs

How is KCC SGA currently structured? KCC SGA is currently made of four independent councils, each with their own president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary, as well as up to twenty representatives. These independent councils may collaborate, but do not have a formal structure to do so.
What is the proposed structure? Under the proposed structure, KCC SGA would be a single association with a Cabinet made of seven officers and a Senate made of twelve senators. Together, these two bodies would form the General Body, which would be in charge of making or approving all SGA decisions.
Why would SGA consolidate? While there are pros and cons to consolidation, SGA chose to pursue this action in order to raise the profile of the student voice on campus, to focus efforts and resources through a single association, and to make Student Government more open and reliable for the student body.
What does the Governance Plan have to do with this? Currently, the KCC Governance Plan/College Council Constitution outlines the structure of KCC SGA as having 5 different councils. Because this is the overall governing document for all of campus, KCC SGA must work within that framework. Without the amendments to the Governance Plan, KCC SGA must continue under the multi-council system.
What is the process for consolidation? First, SGA researched structures at dozens of other schools, both in and out of CUNY. Using this knowledge, the students created a constitution for the proposed association. In order to approve the new plan, four things are necessary:

1. 10% of the student body must sign a petition allowing a campus-wide vote regarding consolidation.

2. The student body as a whole must vote in favor of the new structure.

3. The KCC College Council must approve updates to the college Governance Plan to accommodate the new structure.

4. The CUNY Board of Trustees must approve the updated Governance Plan with accommodations for the updated structure.

Once these four things are done, KCC SGA may proceed to elect officers and begin to function under the new structure.

What is Student Government Association?

SGA is the student voice on campus. SGA officers and representatives hold regular meetings and sit on various campus- and CUNY-wide committees to represent our students' interests in college governance.
