Article IX. Ex Officio Membership
Section 1. Membership
- Any registered student organization or person designated by the Vice President of Student Affairs as a special representative may petition the Assembly for ex officio status if said organization’s/group’s constitution and purpose reflect the desire to represent a specific group or groups of students not adequately represented on Student Government Association.
- Priority for ex officio status will be afforded to those organizations or special representatives designated by Affirmative Action law which covers qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and veterans.
- Consideration will be given to other populations that represent specific student groups but are not reflected in the Affirmative Action guidelines. However, these groups in petitioning must show a clearly defined student need for additional representation.
