SAEA is a student-directed, faculty-sponsored, pre-service professional organization for students who are enrolled in, or who are interested in enrolling in, the teacher education program.

This organization provides an opportunity for students with shared aspirations for public and/or Lutheran teaching to be supportive of each other’s efforts, and to foster wholesome interactions between students and the teacher education faculty. Membership in this organization qualifies students to become members of the Alabama Education Association for students.

国产偷拍视频The purpose of the SGA is to serve the student body; to work toward the maintenance and improvement of the campus community; to promote cooperation among students, faculty/staff, administration and the community at large; to encourage a sense of loyalty and school spirit; to help plan, organize, supervise, and evaluate college life; and to stimulate personal growth and social development.

The SGA is comprised of all students enrolled at Concordia College. The governing board is open to all qualified students. The student body elects the governing board of the SGA during the month of September. Students interested in serving on the governing board are encouraged to campaign for the various offices which are: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Student Activity Coordinator, Chaplain, and elective representatives from each class (usually the President from each class).

To be eligible to hold office on the Student Government Association the following are required and must be maintained:

  • The student must have and maintain good academics with a GPA of at least 2.5.
  • The student must declare intent and receive clearance from the Director of Student Life and the Registrar.
  • The student must clear all financial obligations.
  • The student must be a full-time student.
  • The student’s record must be free, and remain free, during tenure in office. (ie: No academic probation, social probation, financial delinquency).
The governing board meets monthly with the Vice President of Student Services. The governing board will meet weekly at the designated time. It is the responsibility of the governing board to present suggestions and recommendations from the student body to the Vice President of Student Services.
The Vice President of Student Services, who also serves as advisor to the SGA, is responsible for funneling suggestions/recommendations to the appropriate Cabinet Officer. Members of the SGA governing board represent the student body on other committees of the college. The SGA president and vice president are voting members of the Student Services department.
The SGA president, along with another member of the SGA, serves on the Discipline Committee. SGA representatives serve on the Planning Council, Academic Policies Committee, Spiritual Life Committee, Library Committee and Food Services Committee. The SGA also helps to plan and implement various activities and cultural events through the Coordinator of Student Activities.

The aim of the Millionaires Business Club is to inspire the students of Concordia College to become financially aware and responsible through mentorship with professionals from Dallas County and the surrounding areas.

The Intra-Dormitory Life Committee serves as a problem-prevention committee. The Committee identifies potential concerns and problems related to dormitory living and, when possible, offers suggestions that may preclude disciplinary actions.

  • Have attended Concordia College for at least one full semester;
  • Maintain at least a 2.00 cumulative average; and
  • Demonstrate behavior and attitude illustrative of Christian living in a dormitory environment.

The Director of Student Life, through Resident Counselors, supervises the Committee. The committee will follow the guidelines below:
