Student Senate

Undergraduate Council amends bylaws

The 52nd Student Senate approved changes to the Undergraduate Council’s bylaws on September 21. According to the motion, the newest changes ensure that the Undergraduate Council treasurer "[Notifies] the appropriate Student Activities Resource Person (SARP) of the approval of any Undergraduate Council budget passed by the Undergraduate Council.” Undergraduate Council Representative Ketu Patel ’24 called the bylaw change a way to make sure budget updates are noticed by the appropriate Class Council treasurer. “There was a previous incident,” Patel explained, “and all the class councils already have [this change] in place now.”

The motion passed 18-0-0 with little discussion.

The Student Senate meets on Tuesdays at 8 pm in the Shelnutt Gallery.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that changes to the Undergraduate Council budget are to be noticed by the Senate treasurer and that the UC budget could be amended within the semester. This has been changed to reflect that the appropriate SARP is to be informed of Undergraduate Council budget approval by the appropriate Class Council treasurer.
