The Student Senate approved the revisions of the Union Constitution on Monday; this is a positive change for Greek life. The Senate also removed every reference to the Inter Fraternity Council and Panhellenic Council except for the Greek senator positions where they voted to keep these positions. This removed the clauses giving the Judicial Board the right to review all IFC and Panhel legislation and well those outlining Greek Judicial Board. The Rensselaer Union Constitution now reflects that the IFC and Panhel are independently constituted bodies and that the Union does not have jurisdiction over their actions. This also gives the IFC and Panhel constitutions the ability to define the Greek Judicial Board separately.
