SGA convened to plan for elections and discussed ways to obtain free academic resources for students.

The Student Government Association (SGA) held its weekly meeting this Tuesday, Jan. 30. 

Chief Justice Luc Mazzanobile and Chair of the Committee on Student Elections Nubaira Milki presented the Spring elections timeline that will occur between late February and mid-March. Mazzanobile also presented on the 2024 student nominations for Committee on Student Elections Council after which a closed voting began.

President Stone Meng, KSAS Senator Tim Huang and Secretary Amy Li presented on the Academic Resources Initiative. The initiative has successfully made iClickers free for all undergraduate students starting in Spring 2024. There were discussions on the possibility of working with Macmillan Learning representatives to obtain other Macmillan Learning products, including Chem21Labs and Achieve platforms. Potential other initiatives include free printing and more accessible supply closets for students. 

Chair of the Committee on Academic Affairs Resham Talwar presented the first reading of the Academic Affairs Survey Tabling Funding Bill. The bill funds a tabling event where the Committee on Student Affairs receives feedback from students on issues the committee is working on. The bill was moved to the finance committee.

Senator Molly Kuzma presented the second reading of the Student-Athlete Caucus Bill. The bill proposes the creation of a caucus within SGA for student-athletes on campus to support their interests and share unique experiences that student-athletes may have. The bill passed unanimously.
