The other members who are elected are the Student Body Vice-President, the World Congress President, and the Cultural Committee President. An additional delegate to Student Government is elected by the students in the Computer Science and Accounting MBA Professionals programs. The Secretary and Treasurer are appointed nonvoting members of Student Government. Additional appointed members include the Food Committee Representative, the Campus Sustainability Representative, the Student Health Representative, and the Communications Coordinator.
The Student Forum is a venue for students to share ideas and opinions, and voice concerns. It is a discussion, which can be held in person or online. Any student may attend Forum meetings.
The Student Body is responsible for voting on Student Government proposals that require approval of the Student Body according to the Student Government Charter. Voting on Student Government proposals is conducted via email or other means to the entire Student Body.
All students are encouraged to become involved by serving on Student Government, participating in the Forum, presenting proposals, and expressing their views. Get to know your Student Government, and get things done.
