The UNC Charlotte Student Government Association (SGA) continues to hold programs, tabling and pass legislation regarding the most pressing concerns of the student body.

Updates

As of February, 48 new student organizations and 59 pieces of legislation have been approved by the SGA legislative branch. Information on newly approved organizations and how to join can be found on OrgSync. All Senate meetings begin at 5 p.m. every Thursday in Popp Martin Student Union room 200. Senate meetings will also be streamed live on Instagram and are open to the public.

SGA has begun a weekly social media campaign on Twitter and Instagram. Every day of the week will represent a different theme. Wednesdays will be used to announce the speaker at Senate for that week.

“OrgSync” will be changed to “Norm’s Hub.” The website will be redesigned to be more user friendly and streamlined with university services.

2018 SGA spring election nomination forms are now open. The deadline to apply is February 26 at 5 p.m. Applications can be found on OrgSync.

Faculty and Staff Member of the Year nominations will be taken during SGA tabling in the Student Union from 1 to 3 p.m. Nominations close on March 12.

Legislation

Senate Video Publication Act: The legislative branch will be creating a Youtube channel featuring videos of Thursday Senate meetings, promo videos for upcoming projects and informational videos describing different aspects of Senate.

SGA Reapportionment Act: The Senate has undergone internal changes to make the legislative branch more representative of the student body, allow for more student input and encourage multiple voices and perspectives in SGA. We reapportioned the possible senate seats to increase from 40 to 58, including 12 new special interests seats based on each of the 12 categorizations of student organizations.

All legislation can be found on https://sga.uncc.edu/legislation.
