The Student Organization Budget and Appropriations Committee (SOBAC) is a joint initiative and responsibility between the Richmond College Student Government Association (RCSGA) and the Westhampton College Government Association (WCGA) that annually allocates funds to SOBAC approved organizations of the University in order to maximize the quality of student life.
The contingency process is a process independently run by RCSGA and WCGA and is designed to support newly recognized groups as well as current organizations facing unanticipated expenses.
For a comprehensive guide to SOBAC and Contingency Funding, click here.
Resolutions may operate as an official statement of intent or a position that WCGA wants to officially establish, representative of the will of the entire body. WCGA adopted the practice as a way to document our efforts and hold each body accountable to their purpose and course of action as the body changes from year to year. Joint resolutions are sponsored by both government bodies.
You can find an archive of past resolutions here.
This is a calendar of all upcoming student government events.

All details for a particular event are included and other campus events may be included as well.
Each semester, WCGA and RCSGA publish a newsletter highlighting some of our most important endeavors as a student government. Check out our most recent newsletter below.
