Goals

Our goal is to evaluate and improve accessibility, transparency, and fairness within the internal practices of SGA and student senate through the following measures:

  1. We will evaluate the accessibility of SGA, focusing on the ability of SGA to be truly representative of the campus in its entirety,  through focus groups* and surveys by the end of the fall 2018 semester. Based on our evaluation, during Spring 2019, we will make recommendations to improve SGA’s accessibility to the student body.
  2. We will evaluate transparency, focusing on consolidating communication across senate subcommittees and the campus at large, through focus groups and surveys by the end of the fall 2018 semester. Based on our evaluation, during Spring 2019, we will make recommendations to improve SGA’s transparency to the student body.
  3. We will evaluate the fairness of SGA, focusing on budget allocation, through focus groups, surveys, and investigation of past budgets and financial documents by the end of the fall 2018 semester. Based on our evaluation, during Spring 2019, we will make recommendations to improve the fairness of SGA’s budget allocation.
