Services and Events
When a Southeastern student, staff member or faculty member feels they have received a ticket in error, they may appeal it. For more information about parking and appeals, visit the SGA Parking Appeals page.
Interpretation of Governing Documents
The Governing Documents of the Southeastern Student Government Association are the SGA Constitution and Bylaws. When there is a question of meaning of any portion of these documents, it is the duty of the Student Supreme Court to rule on the interpretation.
The Cabinet members, Senators, and Justices of SGA have all sworn oaths to serve the student body of Southeastern. If any of these members are suspected to be in violation of their duties as outlined by the SGA Constitution and Bylaws, they may be tried for impeachment, and if found to be guilty, removed from office. The Student Supreme Court handles impeachment trials for the Exucutive and Legislative Branch, while impeachment trials of Judicial Branch members are handled by the Legislative Branch.
Free Speech Alley
Free Speech Alley is an opportunity for Southeastern students to voice their opinions on a selected topic. Traditionally, it is held in the Student Union Breezeway during the day once per semester so that students can participate on their way to and from class.
Voter Registration Drives
SGA advocates civic responsibility for Southeastern students. To that end, the Judicial Branch hosts periodic voter registration drives to educate students on the importance of voting and encourages registering to vote.
