Senate Committees

Policy and Finance

The Policy & Finance (PF) committee works with Senators along with the Student Government Treasurer and Chief Justice of the Student Government Supreme Court. During meetings, the committee meets with representatives from student organizations all over campus so that Student Government can co-sponsor events that are free and open to all students. The committee co-sponsors events so that student organizations have the funding they need to successfully execute planned events. The committee also works with the Supreme Court and other interested parties to propose any constitutional changes or amendments to the Student Government Constitution or Statutes like adding seats to the Senate

Senate's Policy and Finance Committee meets every Tuesday at 5:30 PM in the Vista Room on the Third Floor of the Student Center.

University Affairs

University Affairs (UA) is a Senate committee that works on various initiatives around campus for the betterment of the UM community. Our committee focuses primarily on campus issues/projects such as those with facilities, dining, parking/transportation etc. We partner with CLC in the Executive Branch and on-campus departments to work on small-scale and large-scale projects to meet the needs of UM students. Senators in this committee get an opportunity to have a hands-on experience in promoting change on our campus while building connections with campus professionals.

Academic Affairs

In conjunction with the Academic Liaison Council, the Academic Affairs (AA) committee is aimed at ensuring the best possible experience for students in the classroom. We work with financial aid, student accounts, the registrar, faculty and other offices on campus to express student concerns. From making syllabi available when choosing classes to ensuring student rights, the Academic Affairs’ initiatives will improve academic life across the university. We aim to represent all student concerns and work with faculty to make sure those students are met. Our overall goal is to make sure that UM remains an excellent academic institution that cultivates a culture of learning, innovation, and creativity.
