Student Government

Greetings and thank you for visiting the PVCC Student Government (StuGo) web page! The purpose of our site is to have a student, user-friendly place where students can get all the latest information of what their Student Government is doing for them. As you navigate, you will find meeting dates and times, events on campus that StuGo or other clubs and organizations might be involved with, leadership opportunities and more!

The Student Government at Paradise Valley Community College is not only a great way to get involved and stay connected, but it is a way to help serve our fellow student body. We are the link between students and administration and we strive to improve the quality of the lives of students on campus while they are here by doing so.

We hope that you will visit is us at one of our official meetings, which take place the first and third Tuesday of every month. A list of official meetings information, such as days, times and location, can be found on our calendar. We hope you find our page helpful and are eager to get involved and make positive social change for a better campus and a better tomorrow! It's a great day to be a Puma!
