Courtesy of SGA’s Website This week’s Legislative Body meeting discussed changes to the university’s advising department, new clubs and other advisor updates.

Senator Arden Adams took the oath of office for the previously vacant position of Rule Committee Parliamentarian after a vote of 6-0 with one abstention.

 

Adams said, “I am affluent in leadership positions that aren’t strictly COPA, so I wanted to get out here more with this position.”

 

President Marc Palombo recommended removing the position in the future, saying more people in executive positions has the potential to bog down the efficiency of the Executive Cabinet.

 

Palombo recommended passing the duties of the Rule Committee Parliamentarian on to the Vice President in the future.

 

Treasurer MC Carder plans on meeting with Physical Plant’s Vice President of Operations Chris Hill to discuss installing string lights above the alleyway leading from Village Park to First Avenue.

 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Chair Allicia Broyard was unable to attend the meeting, and Senator Dylan Pearson spoke in her place.

 

Pearson noted that the upcoming Multicultural Festival was in the process of selecting restaurants for catering. He also noted DEI’s work on a gender neutral health survey, “Ovaries Overview.”

 

DEI plans on handing out free condoms and sexual health pamphlets later this semester.

 

Senator Riley Mahon updated the senators on his “Net 0” effort to provide a more environmentally friendly campus.

 

Mahon is investigating means to convert the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Dance Complex into a green space.

 

SGA approved additional Emergency Funding for a student organization who mistakenly filled out the wrong fund requesting form.

 

SAEM Club’s Superbowl Watch Party fund request of $198.93 was approved 9-0 with one abstention.

 

The Constitution of the Political Science Association (PSA) was approved 9-0 with one abstention.

 

PSA President and Senator Kyle MacLaughlin said, “[It’s] focused on setting up political discussions, organizing for larger events and sharing when off-campus actions occur.”

 

The constitution for a new student-run newspaper, “The Disk” was tabled for further discussion in a vote of 9-0 with one abstention.

 

SGA said it looked to be a satirical paper, and invited the constitution writer to come forward to their meeting next week and elaborate on the paper.

 

The next SGA meeting will be held on Feb. 12 in LH200 at 3:15 p.m. and is open to anyone.
