Student Government works under a number of governing documents. The Student Government Constitution was ratified by the Student Association (the student body, undergraduate and graduate) in 2000, and outlines the fundamental structure and responsibilities of Student Government. It has been amended six times, by a three-fifths vote of the Student Association. Under the Constitution, different parts of Student Government have also adopted by-laws detailing their membership, operation, and function. The General Assembly By-Laws, College Council By-Laws, Graduate Council By-Laws describe the operation of the respective body it governs. Links to updated versions of the Election By-Laws and Election Code are provided.
This year, the Constitutional Review Committee is working to update the governing documents, and to ensure consistency in their application. Minutes from their meetings will be posted on this page. The Committee meets Thursdays at 8:00.
