SGA Guidelines

Welcome to The Fairleigh Dickinson University Metropolitan Campus Student Government Association guidelines pages. It is our hope that this medium will provide useful and pertinent information for all students.  Additionally, we want to provide resources and opportunities for student feedback and interaction.  The number one goal of this administration is to serve you and be sensitive to your needs.  This web page was created with that goal in mind, and with the hope that you would use this site to communicate with members of your SGA.

Please never hesitate to contact any member of the SGA with questions or concerns you may have. You can email us at This administration and I will not feel successful until we create  a transparent, accountable, and inclusive student government.

The SGA exists in order to enhance your FDU experience. It advises on policy issues, coordinates Tri-partite committees of faculty, administrators, and students, and funds student programming. As both a funding and governing board, the SGA works in collaboration with student groups to enhance campus life, affect change, instill a sense of FDU pride and promote community.

Our Mission

To strive for honor in the service and protection of the student body of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus, through representing their interests and developing personal relationships. In addition, we strive to work diligently to cultivate partnerships with the student body, administration, faculty, staff, and community, to maximize each student’s educational and personal growth. The Student Government Association also encourages student involvement and will provide opportunities to develop a lifetime relationship with the University for each student and to keep Fairleigh Dickinson University at the forefront of higher education.

Individual Guidelines

The Allocations Process

Each year, the Univer­sity allocates funds to the Student Government Association. These funds are dispersed to SGA recognized organizations through the Appropriations Committee, which consists of 8-10 students. More information on the Appropriations and Allocations Committee is found on page 32.
