The Student Association Assembly met on Wednesday to discuss a resolution to Student Life’s proposed policy regarding new club policies. The Assembly decided not to pass a resolution until after the Nov. 5 meeting.
The proposed Student Life policy would potentially shift much of SA’s power to Student Life, a university-administered organization.
After the Assembly’s Oct. 24 meeting, the Assembly decided because there were no new findings on the proposed Student Life policies, members would wait to write a resolution until after the next Student Life forum on Nov. 5.
After the short meeting, Assembly Speaker Steven Jackson made a statement to The Spectrum.
“The Assembly is waiting until after the Nov. 5 forum to make any further public moves,” Jackson wrote in an email. “We hope that Student Life cooperates with us as a part of the Student Association, as well as all other student government systems to implement policies that are effective and efficient, but are not contrary to the interests of each individual body. We will see how this upcoming Monday goes, and after discussing our options with other leadership officials, we will determine our next course of action.”
The next Assembly meeting will be held on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in 330 Student Union.
