About the Student Government Association

There are many opportunities to serve in student government during your time at NNU. Each class is served by an elected Class Council which consists of a number of positions who work to create class-specific events throughout the year and also work closely within the larger student government association as Senators and board members.

Our Student Government Association is made up of three branches that parallel those of our United States government. 

LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

JUDICIAL BRANCH

Our Judicial branch consists of a Chief Justice and six other students, all of whom are appointed by the SGA President, and serve terms that last the duration of their time here at NNU as students, or until they choose to resign. The Student Judicial Board serves as a disciplinary board for the student body of NNU and its organizations. 

Like the Supreme Court, our Judicial Board is the final authority regarding interpretations of the ASNNU Constitution and all legislative acts of the ASNNU Senate. In addition, the Board is also the final arbitrator in all contested student elections.

EXECUTIVE BRANCH

The Executive branch is, in essence, the elected President and two Vice Presidents along with the other six officers who are appointed by committe decision of the elected officials. These other six officers include a Secretary, Business Manager, Publicity Director, Community Relations Coordinator, Campus Ministries Coordinator, and Oasis (yearbook) Editor. 

The President also appoints three ex-oficio members of SGA: Student Center Director, Intramurals Director, and Athletic Liaison. 

These representatives are responsible for enhancing the stated goals and ideals of NNU, coordinating activities which will benefit our student body, create and maintain meaningful communication lines between students, faculty, and administration. It is also their intent to protect the rights of student, to promote a favorable relationship between the community of Nampa and our students, and to promote a strong sense of community within and among our own campus.
