STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the voice of the student body at Langston University. The SGA is an organization of students elected by their peers, which advocates for the development and advancement of student interests both inside and outside of the university community. Members of the SGA are elected by the student body annually. Some of their responsibilities include supporting student initiatives, allocating student activity funds, and communicating student issues and opportunities to staff and faculty. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the legislative process in a hands-on environment.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES BOARD

The Student Activities Board (SAB) provides programs for the students of Langston University. The SAB is appointed after an application and interview process. This group plans and produces social, educational, entertainment, and health-related programs while helping SAB members gain experience in event planning, marketing, public relations, and leadership.
