President’s Report:

ATM

Over the past two weeks, I have been thinking of ways to promote Student Government. One way this can be achieved is through advertising. With that being said, I decided that “sponsoring” an ATM (Automated Teller Machine) in the new Williamson College of Business Administration would be a great way to promote Student Government. I have met with Mr. Matthew Novotny, Director of Kilcawley Center, Mr. Jack Fahey, Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Ombudsperson, and Dr. Betty Jo Licata, Dean, WCBA, to discuss this idea. As of today, Mr. Novotny is planning to meet with Home Savings & Loan next week. Also, Gene Grilli, Vice President for Finance & Administration, and Mr. Novotny will be checking the legalities for such a project.

Dining Services

Tom Totterdale, General Manager of Dining Services, and I spoke approximately two (2) weeks ago about drafting and distributing surveys about campus eating. Since a survey of this nature was a success in the past, both Tom and I agree that it should be done, again. We would like to “update” student preferences to give the students what they want. Let’s face it—what students may have wanted five (5) years ago may not be what they want now.

Campus Meal Plan

At our first general meeting, I spoke to the body concerning “meal plan” changes and how off campus dining options are going to become available in the near future. Currently, off campus dining options are available and in place. Off campus locations include: Subway, McDonalds, Buffalo Wild Wings, CVS, Coyoacan Two, and Antone’s.

SGA Advisor

As you may have heard, Dr. Martin Manning will not be returning as an SGA Advisor. With that being said, we need to find an advisor. Since Dr. Cooper is the Chair of the Academic Senate, he automatically serves as an ex officio advisor for SGA. This being the case, we are able to have a faculty or staff advisor or both, as outlined in our By-Laws. If you have any suggestions, please see me after meeting.

Resignation(s)

Charles Mankey- Beeghly College of Education (BCOE)

Christine Nkemeh- Health & Human Services (HHS)

Brandi Veigh- Graduate Studies

We are accepting applications to fill these seats this week. If you are a representative of one of these colleges, I strongly encourage you to speak with fellow students regarding these openings. If not, I still encourage all representatives to advocate for SGA representative replacements.

Freshman Representatives

William (Bill) Masters

Aseel Ramahi

Zachary White

Please welcome them!

Executive Vice President’s Report

SGA Apparel

Each fall, SGA usually orders two apparel items for each of its representatives. Traditionally, this has been a t-shirt and hoodie. This year, we have been looking at several alternative options, though not necessarily counting out t-shirts or hoodies. We will be passing around a size sheet later during this meeting, so that we can determine what quantity of each size will need to be ordered. If you have any thoughts or design ideas, please feel free to come down to the office and discuss them.

Course requirements (Academic Standards)

An issue brought to the attention of SGA will be referred to the Academic Standards committee in the Academic Senate. A student had complained that an instructor was requiring attendance to 5 campus events for a particular class. While the student was able to resolve the issue with the instructor when the instructor reduced the requirement to 2 events; SGA is not assured that instructors are allowed to place requirements in the curriculum that take place outside of the scheduled class hours AND are not relevant to course content. In order to ensure a clear and concise policy exists on this issue and that students, as well as faculty, are observing said policy (if one is already in place), we have passed this information on to Academic Standards to further examine the issue.
