Resolution 11: GPSA R11: Revising and Formalizing the Procedures for the Consideration of Resolutions

TermAY 2020-2021
AssemblyGraduate and Professional Student Assembly
StatusAcknowledged by the President
AbstractThe assembly resolves to amend the Bylaws in three ways to improve the procedure by which resolutions are adopted and conveyed: (1) The current Bylaws require that votes on any resolution must be postponed at least one meeting following its introduction, unless two-thirds vote to suspend the Bylaws. This resolution deletes that requirement and allows the Assembly to adopt resolutions in the meeting in which they are introduced. (2) This resolution replaces the absolute majority voting requirement of resolutions with that of a simple majority, as is recommended for deliberative assemblies. (3) This resolution requires the President to convey adopted resolutions to the President of the University and states the recourses in case the President fails to do so.
