Student Government Association

Student Government Association (SGA) exists to encourage responsible student activism through self-governance.

As the Representative unit of the student body, we secure and defend our right to full participation in the process of decision-making which affects our education and educational environment.

All MassArt students are members of our organization – come to a meeting and make a difference. Everyone is welcome to attend any Full Council meetings; details about virtual meetings for Fall 2020 will be forthcoming.  The Full Council is made up of one representative from every department on campus as well as one representative from every SGA-recognized student organization. Full Council is led by the SGA Executive Board.

Hello everyone, my name is John Intoppa and I am a Sophomore at MassArt (Class of 2023)! 

I am from Medford, Massachusetts and I am an Industrial Design major. I grew up playing baseball and rowing, but I have always had a love for the arts through theater and woodworking. 

I have political and student government experience, serving as a candidate for the Medford School Committee and as the Senior Class President at Medford High School in 2019. I aim to use this experience to voice the concerns of students and represent their viewpoints on the Board of Trustees, and to make the best possible decisions for the College and its community. 

Please feel free to reach out to me via email.  I rely on feedback from the students in order to gain the perspective needed for this position, so please don't hesitate!
