    SGA Suggestion Box

    SGA Suggestion Box

    Please share with us your suggestions, complaints, and ideas regarding your Northern Essex Community College (NECC) experience.

    Every change big or small requires two things, an idea, and people. Simply sharing an idea or even a concern is the first step in creating change on our campus. Change cannot happen with a single person. With your help and your ideas, we can all make NECC into not just a College but our home where everyone in our community is welcome and included.

    Northern Essex Community College students may use this anonymous form to submit suggestions, complaints, and ideas to the NECC Student Government Association (SGA) for change we can advocate for on campus.

    While the form can be submitted anonymously, you can also provide your name and contact information (below) if you’d like a direct response regarding your suggestion. If you would like it to be anonymous please disregard the fields below that would identify you.

    Don’t forget any NECC student can bring their ideas/ questions/concerns to our SGA meetings which are open to our entire campus community. SGA meets on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month while classes are in session in the fall and spring semester at 4:00PM.

    Please contact SGA at studentgovernment@student.necc.edu for more information about where SGA meetings are held and/or how to obtain the Zoom info to join us virtually.
