SUUSA Senate Meeting 09/25

The Southern Utah University Student Association (SUUSA) held their weekly meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 25, to go over current campus issues.

The possible relocation of the student section was a focus after the motion was tabled a week ago. It was proposed that a block of seats would be set aside for students to sit with their family as an alternative to the new section behind the hoop.

After the amendment was suggested, the relocation of the student section was approved by a vote of 15-3.

Other items on the agenda included dispersing office hours to senate members so students could meet with someone throughout each school day. Also, funding was approved for the men’s rugby club, the percussion club and the homecoming committee.

One goal moving forward is for SUU to create an environment of diversity and inclusion on campus. D’Mia Lamar, SUUSA president, is attending seminars with the Diversity Strategic Planning Executive Committee.

“We are charged with creating a diversity plan for the university that would help us diversify campus in different ways…not only in race and ethnicity, but religiously and geographically as well,” Lamar said.

For those interested in becoming more involved on campus, SUUSA Senate meetings are held every Tuesday in the Sterling Church Auditorium at 11:30 a.m.
