Structure of the Student Association
The SA is composed of the Executive Committee, Senate, Social Committee, SA Office, and the various committees comprised of section officers (Presidents, Educational Representatives, Career Representatives, Technology Representatives, Leadership and Values Representatives, Orientation Committee, etc.).
The Executive Committee consists of the two Co-Presidents and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of SA, the Chief Operating Officer (COO), the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), and the Head Social Chair. The committee is responsible for major SA decisions, fiscal responsibility of the SA, and management of the SA Office. The Executive Committee is elected in a class-wide election by the first-year students in February/March.
The Senate is the legislative body of the SA and interfaces directly with administrative and faculty groups on campus through various committees (Academic, Operations, etc.). It is composed of one Senator from each section (both first- and second-year) and representatives from each of the other major committee (Presidents, Technology, Leadership and Values, International, etc.). The Senate is led by the Co-Presidents of the SA.
The Social Committee plans many major social events on campus, including TGIFs, Holidazzle, and graduation gala.
Section officers are responsible for leadership of their respective sections and for representing the sections in various campus-wide initiatives. Sections are led by Section Presidents who are responsible for setting section agendas, running section meetings, and moderating any discussions or issues that may arise in the section.
