Committees

Finance Committee

The purpose of the finance committee is to assure that the funds of the SGA are properly handled for the benefit of all students. If a student or group of students needs funding and has exhausted every resource possible for other sources of funding, then the committee should be considered as a possible source of funding. The finance committee will investigate and deliberate over all requests for funding in a timely and judicious manner.

Operational Review Committee

The operational review committee shall observe the expenditure of the senate discretionary fund and ensure that money is spent efficiently and that all senators have an equal share of said funds.

Student Advocacy Committee

The purpose of the student advocacy committee is based upon the ideal of maximising representation of the student body. This committee shall investigate student concerns and make recommendations as deemed appropriate.

Internal Affairs Committee

The purpose of the internal affairs committee (IAC) is to ensure senator compliance with all requirements as well as ensuring compliance by SGA officials with the ethics codes. The IAC shall have the responsibility of maintaining the ethics code.

Rules, Legislation & Judiciary Committee

The rules, legislation, and judiciary committee ensures that the Senate undergoes proper procedure in accordance with Robert’s Rules of Order, the SGA constitution, and SGC-BBC statutes. The committee also serves as a liaison between the legislative and judicial branch of SGA.

Graduate and Professional Student Committee

As part of SGA, the Graduate Student Funding Committee (GSFC) helps facilitate and enhance the overall graduate student experience, by advancing the university’s academic goals and promoting quality presentations and research efforts. It also works in conjunction with other graduate student organizations and departments in order to present educational workshops on many topics including thesis/dissertation. It also coordinates symposiums and scholarly forums.
