Student Government Association (SGA)
United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) recognizes the importance of the student’s voice and encourages the participation of students in the student government. The Student Government Association (SGA) is comprised of representatives from each of the academic programs. Elections from the membership at large are held annually for the following offices: student body president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.
The SGA has an annual budget and two advisors.
The SGA is the governing and legislative board of the student body. It serves as the primary representative of the student interests in policy formation and as an intermediary between the administration, student body, and faculty. The SGA also serves to represent the UTTC students as members of the campus and Bismarck/Mandan communities.

SGA Suggestion Box:
Please share with us your suggestions, complaints, and ideas regarding your United Tribes Technical College experience. Every change big or small requires two things, an idea, and people. Simply sharing an idea or even a concern is the first step in creating change on our campus. Change cannot happen with a single person. With your help and your ideas, we can all make United Tribes Technical College into not just a College but our home.
United Tribes Technical College Students may use this anonymous form to submit suggestions, complaints, and ideas to the United Tribes Technical College Student Government Association for change we can advocate for on campus.
While the form can be submitted anonymously, you can also provide your name and contact information (below) if you would like a direct response regarding your suggestion.
