NEC aims to support a wide range of opportunities for student engagement and leadership both inside and outside the performance halls and classrooms.
We are dedicated to serving the student body by soliciting and acting upon student needs and concerns.
The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to enrich the student experience, encourage student involvement, and promote the common interests and general welfare of the student body. Members of the SGA serve as a liaison between the student body and NEC’s administration and regular meetings aim to offer a unique platform for idea-sharing and engagement with NEC's senior administration.
