The Executive Branch

The SGA Executive consists of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. In addition to the board is the Executive Cabinet consisting of the Executive Initiative Directors and the Director of SGA Express. The Executive elections take place each spring and Director positions are appointed by the President. ​​​

Each member of the cabinet serves the President in a specific area of interest which is important to the mission of SGA. The cabinet works on projects for both executive initiatives as well as in support of legislative work in the Senate. 

 

The Legislative Branch

The Senate is comprised of twenty-six Senators with two Senators from each class and two Senators from each academic school who are elected in October and serve for the remainder of the academic year. SGA Vice President Gemma del Carmen serves as the presiding officer of all Senate sessions.  
 
There are currently five standing committees in the Senate: Rules and Administration, Academic Affairs, University Services, Student Resources, and Campus Life. Each committee is responsible for a particular area of expertise. Committee chairs are elected by the Senate body at the first session.
 

The Treasury Board
The SGA Treasury Board is made up of eight voting members across all classes at the Catholic University of America. This group of directors is led by the Treasurer, who votes only in cases of a tie. The Treasury Board is responsible for allocating funds out of the student activity fee to all student organizations for operations, programming events, other related costs.
