SGA Executive Board

The School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (SPHTM) Student Government Association (SGA) serves as a platform for student concerns and activities by representing the views of students to the administration and faculty. SGA works closely with SPHTM student organizations, other student body governments across Tulane University, and hosts numerous events and activities each year.

We would love for you to become involved!  Your involvement could be through suggestions and feedback about what could help Tulane and SPHTM become better, becoming an SGA representative on various committees, or creating unique programming to fit your needs.  We encourage you to be vocal and we sincerely hope you take full advantage of the opportunities and resources available to you.
