With appearances from medical students and members of Oklahoma Christian University’s student body, the Student Government Association (SGA) had more visitors than usual at last night’s weekly meeting.
SGA members are hoping to permanently include the Multicultural Committee to the constitution. While the group currently functions as a standing committee, members will vote to add the legislation to Article IX of the constitution.
Any legislative change requires a 75% approval from the current senate. If this motion passes, the student body will vote on the matter during executive elections later this semester.
“We don’t want the Multicultural Committee to be an afterthought for the SGA,” President Abigail Kent said.
The SGA has a remaining total of $47,489.85 to spend this semester. While this total does not account for Homecoming, which requires investments during the spring semester, senators must decide how to allocate this budget.
SGA member Cole McDonald presented alongside a team of students who plan to go on a medical mission trip to Guatemala this summer. The team requested a total of $250 per student, amounting to 14.286% of the cost. Students plan to attain medical experience and aid as many children as possible during their time in the country.
