SGA Minutes | Committee appointments approved, Senate reflects on leadership conference


SGA approved 30+ students to committee appointments. The committees include Student Affairs, Discipline Appeals, Auxiliary Services, Committee on Organizations, University Diversity, WRAC, Safety, and Student Self-Assessed Fees.

SGA discussed the success of Leadership NSU, the second annual leadership conference that was hosted Jan. 27-28 with the help of other organizations on campus, such as SAB. Over 400 students registered or signed up to attend. Vice President Tre Nelson said that the featured speakers were impressed with the student body and called it “one of the friendliest student bodies that they’ve visited.”

President John Pearce spoke of the response received following Leadership NSU, stating that he received numerous emails about students interested in becoming SGA senators.

Senator of Academic Affairs Tyler Wright reported that SGA will host another speaker in February and an additional guest speaker on March 14 from the Center for Inclusion and Diversity.

After the meeting, the SGA senators went to Café Demon for Meet Your Senator Day and the Macchiato & Music event to socialize with students. “[This event] is important because … it lets students know that the SGA is there to provide assistance to them if they ever want anything done on campus, or really have a concern that they want the administration to focus on,” Nelson said. “SGA is there to be the voice to the student body.”
