Student Government Association: A Brief History Student Government Association (SGA) is a group of elected students in a university. The name of the group may be different from one university to another. For example, at The University of Michigan the name is Student Assembly, whereas at The University of Colorado Boulder the name is Student Government. Despite the fact that these organization have different names, both of them are working in the same mechanism. The history of SGA goes back to 1909, when the first SGA was established at The Ohio State University (“Wikipedia”). Issue: Student Leader - Web-Only Category: Case Studies Author: Fadi Almazyad
Results. There were statistically significant differences between student government leaders and advisers in universities in the perceptions about the educational value of student government. There were also statistically significant differences in the perceptions of the role of the student government adviser between community college and university students and between community college and university advisers.
Recommendations for Further Research. (1) A similar study of private versus public colleges and universities examining roles and responsibilities of student government leaders, and student government funding. (2) This study should be replicated on a national level to ascertain if there are geographical differences in the perceptions of student government leaders and their faculty advisers.

How and in what ways did external changes in society between 1946 – 1976 affect the student government as an organization and its members?
How and in what ways did internal changes at Florida State University affect the student government as an organization and its members?
Is there a discernable student sub-culture within student government at FSU?
