UPUA Adopts Readjusted Budget, Funds Professional Attire Closet

The 16th Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association met once again Wednesday night.

The meeting began with special presentations from the 3-20 Coalition, the Indigenous People’s Student Association, and the Department of Finance. The first two organizations talked about what a partnership between them and UPUA could look like. The Department of Finance talked about a new process for funding bills and talking about changes to the budget.

UPUA President Erin Boas and UPUA Vice President Najee Rodriguez both gave their official reports before the assembly moved on to new business.

New Business

The first piece of business was Judicial Decision 16-06, which centered on a representative seat application by the Performing Arts Council. The Judicial Board unanimously recommended that PAC should be granted a seat in the assembly. PAC was granted a seat by unanimous consent.

Next, the assembly swore in Aarushi Jadev as the Multicultural Greek Council Representative.

Policy 05-16 was brought up next, and it focused on the readjusted budget for the 2021-22 academic year. The adjusted budget decreased the total funding for Coffee for Finals and Resume Printing in other areas. The policy passed unanimously.

Policy 06-16 followed up and focused on the collaboration between UPUA and its Department of Finance. Bills will now be sent to the Department of Finance so they can have a say in whether or not the money requested for the programs is too much. The policy also passed unanimously.

Finally, Bill 09-16 was brought forward in support of funding the Bank of America Career Service’s Professional Attire Closet, which provides professional attire to students and recent alumni with financial needs. Through it, UPUA would allocate $2,000 to provide financial support to the program to help with whatever Career Services needs. The bill passed unanimously.
