Resolution Index

Resolutions are the primary means by which the Student Senate expresses the will and or opinion of the Student Body. Resolutions often, but not always, originate in a Council or Committee of the Student Senate. After their passage, resolutions are given to the appropriate administrator, department, or official. Compliance with resolutions are assessed periodically by the Student Senate, especially by the Cabinet of the Student Body President.
