As the official student governing body, the Student Government Association represents the Concordia student body to the faculty, the administration and the board of regents. The president, vice president, commissioners and class representatives address student concerns and work closely with the administration in finding solutions to campus issues.
The appointed commissioners head Student Government commissions such as academic affairs, programs and events, campus events, diversity and inclusion and campus ministry. Special interest student leaders work on issues such as sustainability, civic engagement, and issues impacting specific student populations. Class representatives are elected to serve as liaisons to Student Government Association on behalf of their class and serve in various roles within Student Government Association and on college committees. The Student Involvement Council is responsible for supporting student organizations and identifying strategies to encourage student involvement. The council also allocates the Student Government Association portion of the student activity fee. The Elections and Credentials Council is primarily responsible for selecting key student leaders for campus programs, facilitating student government elections and for the Student Government Constitution.
