Executive Reports

President Miles Middleton commented on the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial and reminded students that the work for justice continues beyond this case. He also reported that he is working closely with Speaker of the House Ally Swartzberg in her transition to become the next Student Government president.

Both Swartzberg and Middleton discussed the university vaccine requirement and what that means for students next fall. Treasurer Victoria Parker shared that the Student Budget Advisory Committee (SBAC) application has opened for next fall and the application can be found on The Link. Chief of Staff Drew Skilton shared that he will be working on a video to be played at graduation that thanks front-line workers.

There were two constituent concerns raised. One concern was about landscaping in the early morning hours that has been waking up students and the other was about the amount of fire alarms on campus. Both concerns are being addressed by the Physical Planning Committee.
