Resolution 43

Whereas, the Student Assembly Charter (Article 1, Section 3) states that, “The SA will have the authority and the responsibility to examine any matters which involve the interests or concern the welfare of the student community and to make proposals concerning those issues to the appropriate officers or decision-making bodies of the University;”

Whereas, the SA Committee on Residential & Community Life is charged to “make and review policies that directly affect student life on campus, and maintain legislative authority over these areas (i.e. the Department of Campus Life and the Office of the Dean of Students);

Whereas, the SA revised the housing lottery system during the 2009–2010 academic year;

Whereas, information regarding these changes as well as different housing choices are created by Campus Life with limited student input;

Whereas, this information is disseminated to students via mailings, handouts, and the internet;

Be it therefore resolved, that Campus Life be required to submit future housing information to the SA Committee on Residential & Community Life for approval before it is disseminated to current and prospective students;

Respectfully submitted,
