SGA Representatives’ Roles and Responsibilities
- Representatives are expected to attend bimonthly Wednesday evening meetings in the Harper Student Center Auditorium (HSC 204). Meetings will begin promptly at 5:30.
- Representatives are allowed two unexcused absences per semester. If a representative sends a substitute from their class or organization to the meeting and notifies the SGA secretary or the Student Programs office prior to the missed meeting, the absence will be excused.
- Representatives are required to attend the annual SGA Retreat.
- Representatives are required to work three events per semester, one of which must be a clean-up duty. Sign-up sheets for these events will be made available at meetings. It is each representative’s responsibility to be on time for his or her shift or to find a substitute if a conflict arises.
- All representatives must work a one-hour shift at ALHAMBRA, the SGA’s biggest event of the year.
- Representatives are required to work one of the scheduled projects each semester.
- Representatives not only represent their constituents on the SGA, but they also represent the SGA and the Medical University as a whole to the community.

Expectations of the Petitioning Organization
- The petitioning organization (referred to as “the organization”) must be recognized by the Medical University as a university-wide organization.
