Proposed ASG revisions would change name, reduce number of senators

As students choose the next leaders of the Associated Student Government in Tuesday and Wednesday’s elections, they will also be voting on a referendum that has the potential to rebrand and restructure the organization.

The ASG constitution has been amended following a two-year process of benchmarking the organization against the student governments of comparable institutions and receiving feedback from an outside consultant. If passed through the student referendum on the 2014 election ballot, the proposed constitution would alter the name of ASG to “Student Government.” The new constitution would reduce the size of the senate from 60 to 45 seats, among other changes.
