Hey everybody, I hope the last days of classes were good and study days effective. Good luck during finals and have a fun and safe winter break!
A quick update from SGA, congratulations to Ben Schmidt who was recently appointed and confirmed as the Chief Justice of the Student Court. Ben will beb in charge of over-seeing the SGA elections in spring. He’s the most senior member of the court and will be graduating this May. Kervin and I are sure his time in the new leadership role will be handled flawlessly.
This semester saw the passing of an updated smoking policy. As of now, the policy has been sent to the other campus governance groups and we should have the final word on the policy in March. We also saw the most successful election in UWGB’s history. Roughly 65% of on-campus students voted on-campus! I want to thank Jamie Froh, Chair of University Governance, for overseeing this project. She did an amazing job. We’ve also been fervently working to implement new policies regarding SUFAC. As a result of the Court case earlier this year, it’s become obvious to everyone that things need to be updated, and Senate, SUFAC, and the Executive leadership are all working to make sure everyone is happy with the SUFAC process. We’ve also begun discussions on renewing the U-Pass for next year. From July through November, the U-Pass has been utilized over 21,000 times!
Normally, Spring is a hard semester to get things done. its shorter, people are getting ready to graduate and there is a change in leadership. That is NOT how this year is going to go! We plan to continue the good work that has been done thus far, and to make even more happen to benefit the students of UWGB.
Again, good luck with finals, and have a fun and safe break!
