SGA transitions online for budget month

By: Meredith Whelchel – Managing Editor

At its weekly meeting, the University of Dayton Student Government Association approved three resolutions unanimously with 17 Senate voting members present and prepared for the spring budget month to begin.

Tabled from last week, the Senate approved resolution outlining the bylaws for SGA after members had a chance to thoroughly read the document.

The Senate also unanimously supported funds to advertise the university’s stance on mitigating circumstances in a project led by Senator Raphaella Norahun-Chaneyalew, a sophomore mechanical engineering technology and pre-law major.
The resolution allocated $450 of the Senate discretionary fund toward the project to produce flyers to place around campus.

SGA also passed a resolution to thank UD Housing and Residence Life for adjusting entrance times to dorms from 8 to 10 p.m.

For the spring semester, all budget month requests will be handled online, said vice president of finance and junior finance and management information systems major Allie Michel. To submit requests for funding during budget month,
visit SGA’s Facebook page or website under the finance tab to find a tutorial on the new process.

Michel said she will also be available throughout the month to assist organizations with the process if they have trouble. Her hours will be posted on SGA’s social media sites. Budget month applications will be accepted until Feb.
21. Questions regarding the budget process should be sent to Finance.UDSGA@gmail.com.

SGA meets every Sunday at 6 p.m. in the Kennedy Union Ballroom and is open to the UD community.
