Committees play a crucial role in bringing SGB services and initiatives to life, serving as the primary avenue for their implementation. These committees, led by chairs and composed of board member liaisons and fellow students, form the core of SGB's activities.

Many committees are open to all students and all interested students are encouraged to email the chair for more information on getting involved!
