Student Government Association (SGA)

The Student Government Association (SGA) is the student governing body at MassBay, and is open to all students. SGA represents the official voice of the student body and student opinion on issues that affect all MassBay students. SGA is comprised of eighteen (18) elected students as well as several volunteers. These students meet regularly with faculty, staff, and administrators to improve the quality of the student experience at MassBay. SGA meetings are open to all students, faculty, and staff members.

The purpose of this organization shall be to encourage and to provide for the participation of all students at all campuses, in the affairs of the student body at the College, to promote and develop ideas for the interest, growth and welfare of the College community, and to provide a suitable means of cooperation at the College among the students, the faculty, and the administration of the College.

SGA Needs Student Feedback about Textbooks costs 

 

Fill out the SGA OER Survey

This year, SGA is focused on collecting feedback and student stories about the costs of textbooks. SGA needs your feedback to show faculty members the impact that switching to OER and free resources has on our students, our ability to learn and complete coursework and why we need more of them to switch.We believe all students should be able to access the materials they need to learn and succeed here at MassBay. Please take a minute to complete our short survey. 

What is OER? 

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions. Sourced from: https://www.mass.edu/strategic/oer.asp

If you have taken a course with an online textbook or resources that were free for you to use/access you may have taken a class that utilized OER.
