Executive Summary of SA Constitutional Amendment: School and College Update- Constitutional Amendment
With the 2030 Plan UWM has implemented, there has been a reorganization of the schools and colleges. This is outlined in the attached documents, requiring a structure change to the SA Senate seats. The seat change would be in effect starting May 1st, 2023, as elections are held before the 2030 Plan is in effect starting in July of 2023.
The restructuring of the SA Senate seats is to have each new school represented. As per the 2030 plan, SA will now have 14 academic senate seats, at least one for each school and college, and 38 seats total.
This is to take effect during the election process for the 2023-2024 school year. Though this is before the 2030 Plan is implemented, this is to ensure that we have the correct representatives in seats by the fall.
