The Student Government Association is an important leadership aspect of Upward Bound. The SGA consists of a president, vice president, secretary, and 14 senators (one from each school) and 6 justices (chosen by staff). SGA opportunities and responsibilities include role modeling for Upward Bound students, taking a genuine interest in the purpose of Upward Bound, attending meetings, participating in the interview process for prospective Resident Advisors each spring, and providing input and planning for the summer program.

If you are interested in running for SGA, please contact Emily Grater at the beginning of the summer for an application: 423-439-6188, .
