UPUA Passes Resolution Supporting ‘Know Your Rights’

The 17th Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association met again Wednesday night for another regularly scheduled meeting. The group passed a resolution supporting a program that advocates for students knowing their renters’ rights.

The evening began with a handful of special presentations. First, Percy Rose and Sam Birkenthal spoke on behalf of Lion PRIDE. They talked about the role of Lion PRIDE as one of the prominent LGBTQ+ organizations on campus and how their group would like to work with UPUA in the future.

The other special presentation was from Ava Starks of Black Caucus. She talked about Black Caucus’ main goals and its history at Penn State. She also spoke about her personal goals and how she hopes to lead the organization throughout the year.

Following the presentations, UPUA President Sydney Gibbard and Vice President Carter Gangl gave their reports, and then the assembly moved into new business.

The first item on the agenda was the swearing-in of Parth Gosar, the International Student Council representative. Afterward, the assembly moved on to discussing Resolution #05-17.

Resolution #05-17 focused on supporting the “Know Your Rights: Renters’ Rights program.” The resolution tasked UPUA with hosting a tabling event that would serve as a way to inform students about their rights as renters. The tabling event would occur at the off-campus housing fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 9.

Resolution #05-17 passed unanimously.
