The Senatorial Board is a newly established SGA institution formed under the 2017/18 Executive Council for the prime purposes of expanding the influence of the campus’s SGA, maximizing the representation of the student body, and granting more ordinary students the opportunity to be involved in crucial processes that affect daily campus life at University Park. The Senatorial Board is a bicameral establishment divided into SGA Representatives and SGA Committee Members—with each panel serving distinct purposes.
The SGA Executive Council has allocated all current Registered Student Organizations (RSO’s) into disciplines based on ideological focus. Representatives will be nominated by each RSO discipline to adequately represent the needs of their representative groups. All nominations will undergo an application process to be confirmed by the SGA Executive Council.
SGA Representatives are responsible for meeting once a month with their respective RSO groups to listen to issues and concerns raised by organizations within their constituent groups. Following this they shall report back to the SGA Executive Council at a subsequent meeting, with these issues and topics of discussion, to brainstorm ways and means to address them.
The commitment is also designed to be a stepping stone for those interested in running for the Executive Board. Please contact SGA for inquiries or apply online (link to application).
