Student Government Association

Maine Maritime Academy’s Student Government Association (SGA) is an elected body that represents the students of MMA according to the SGA Constitution. SGA represents the student body regarding any issues or concerns and works to ensure the rights of the students are upheld in accordance with Maine Maritime’s mission statement and purpose. SGA strives to promote the social and personal growth, as well as the general welfare, of the student body. The Student Government is comprised of an executive board, class officers and various senators that represent the academic areas and characteristics of the student body and their community. All full time students at MMA are encouraged to attend open student government meetings and to participate fully in their proceedings.

The SGA office is located on the lower level of the Student Union across from the Student Mailroom and office hours posted on the door.  Please know hours are subject to change without notice. For more information about SGA please contact us at sga@mma.edu.
