Student Governing Association intern program meeting tonight

Submitted by Jackson Willis

It's not too late to get involved in student government. Join the Student Governing Association intern program at 5:45 p.m. Nov. 7 in the Wildcat Chamber at the K-State Student Union. This week will cover the judicial branch.

Since 2018, the K-State Student Governing Association intern program has operated in two distinct phases. The first phase is designed to educate the campus on SGA and its processes. This phase is open to all, the only requirement is to show up prepared to learn! Made up of five individual classes, there are three different sessions of Phase I that happen throughout the year to allow anyone to learn about SGA at any time, not just in the beginning of the semester. 

Phase II focuses on leadership development for the individual, organization and campus at-large. To participate in the second phase, one must have attended three of the five Phase I meetings. Interns learn about current and future opportunities in SGA, hear from prominent K-Staters, and build community with each other.

A participant in the SGA intern program can expect to learn about the organization's role on campus, three branches, processes, elections and membership. The program is an amazing opportunity for any student — freshman or not — looking to get involved on-campus.

Intern eligibility: Any and every student on campus in invited to participate in the intern program. Undergraduate, graduate, nontraditional and international students are all encouraged to attend. To begin the process of becoming an intern simply attend one of the intern program meetings.
