Who We Are


The branches are the heart of the SGA. Each branch has specific roles and purposes to ensure that students have the voice, the freedoms, and the campus they deserve.

  • The Executive Branch is responsible for overseeing all of the operations of the SGA and enforcing its mission to improve student life on campus.
  • The Student Senate carries out projects on campus and relays student concerns to university officials through the appropriate channels.
  • The Student Treasury assists campus organizations in their semesterly funding and manages all financial aspects of the SGA.
  • The Student Court advocates for and protects students’ rights while also assisting students with their parking citations.


The divisions of the SGA are organizations that aim to provide services that directly impact the Embry-Riddle community. They are an integral part of the SGA’s mission to improve student life on campus. Most importantly, the divisions are comprised of students just like you who volunteer their time and skills!
