UPUA Passes Funding For ’19-Credit Social Media Resource Campaign’

The 18th Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) met Wednesday night to pass two pieces of legislation.

The meeting began with a special presentation from Sanjana Devarkonda, executive director of finance for UPUA. Devarkonda introduced herself and new representatives to the student government’s financial department and explained how representatives can apply to use financial resources for their legislation.

With no old business on the agenda, the meeting moved on to new business.

New Business

The first piece of legislation was Bill #12-18: 19-Credit Social Media Resource Campaign. The bill requested $50 in funding for a promoted Instagram ad highlighting financial resource information about scholarships, grants, and equity programs available for students.

The request was inspired by the tuition increase for any student taking 19.5 or more credits in a semester, which the Board of Trustees’ Committee on Finance, Business, and Capital Planning approved in July.

Bill #12-18 passed unanimously.

The second piece of legislation was Bill #13-18: Latino Caucus and Justice & Equity Movie Night: West Side Story. The bill requested $120 in funding for the Latino Caucus to reserve a room in the Freeman Auditorium for a movie night to watch “West Side Story” on Tuesday, October 17, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Bill #13-18 passed unanimously.
