UPUA Adjusts Elections Code, Swears In IFC Representative
The 17th Assembly of the Undergraduate Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) met Wednesday night to adjust the Elections Code, pass a bill, and swear in a new Interfraternity Council (IFC) representative.
Before Wednesday night’s meeting, UPUA members spoke to Dr. Kaela Fuentes-Packnick from the Office of Educational Equity to discuss diversity, inclusion, and equity in a workshop.
UPUA struggled in previous meetings to agree on proposed changes regarding its Elections Code. Article #3.7 was amended to exclude the word “simultaneously.”
The former Article #3.7 read: “All Candidates’ web profiles should be posted
simultaneously to the Elections Information website as early as possible, but no later than one (1) academic Wednesday after the closure of the Registration Period.”
The former language indicated that candidates for elections will not be uploaded to the elections website until March 20 when elections close. This would prevent student voters to view campaigns for a substantial amount of time to make an informed decision.
James McDonald was confirmed and sworn in as the new IFC Representative.
Only one bill was introduced, Bill #49-17 Elections Commission Budget 2023. The bill provided $2,000 from the budget to support election campaigns with event programming, marketing, and elections.
Bill #49-17 passed unanimously.
