The Student Government Association proposed two changes to its constitution during their meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the University Union, room 206.

Zachariah Dornisch, a senior political science major and parliamentarian, shared about SGA’s most recent constitutional changes.

The SGA president is allowed to have a designee go to one Slippery Rock Borough or Slippery Rock Township meeting per month.

The SGA will vote on Thursday, May 3 to approve or disapprove the vice president of Internal Affairs to serve as a voting member of the Board of Cooperative Activities.

SGA gave the representatives an option to include their community outreach as a part of their required 20 office hours per week.

Representatives have the option to ride the Happy Bus and talk to the students to assist them.

“I like that the president is allowed to have a designee,” Dornisch said. “I don’t know how I feel about the second change. I think there was a reason why they changed it from the beginning.”

The purpose of SGA’s office hours is to assist the student body. SGA members should post office hours to inform students of when a member they’re available.

Students may come into the SGA office, which is located in the University Union next to the Union Café, to share their concerns or questions.

SGA members are permitted to answer questions in addition to working on SGA-related assignments.
