These are ideas that students like you have contributed so far to the creation of the new bill of rights. Some are broad, some are specific, but most, as you'll see are just ideas -- and that's what we're looking for! 

SGA will be first collecting broad and general feedback, listening from students, and then working on drafting a bill that is representative and intentional to its core.

25 years. It's been 25 since our student bill of rights has been updated. 

These are rights that ought to protect the students in the classroom.

This fall, your student government, in collaboration with a variety of student groups is launching a campus wide initiative to update our bill of rights, and make it as student centric, and as student representative as possible. 

Our mission is simple: your rights, your voice.
