In these elections, the students vote for their preferred Student Government Associations Officers for the next academic year. To learn more, see a Student Senate Officer or the Student Services Specialist.

  2. Become a Committee Member – Committees are formed based on the needs of students each Trimester/Year.
  3. Attend Meetings – Student Government Association meetings are held every other Tuesday’s at 12:00 PM in the Academic Support Center.   Please check your SIPI email for upcoming meetings.
  4. Attend Social Events – Event Dates are posted in the Student Government Association board in the Academic Support Center and emailed to the SIPI community via SIPI email
