After collaboration with students to elicit feedback, and the SGA Academic Affairs committee to propose changes to the 1992 version of the Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities, the Student Senate unanimously approved changes to the legislation in November of 2017.

Next, the Student Body President and VP for Academic Affairs worked with the Office of Student Affairs and Faculty Senate Academic Policy Committee to negotiate suitable language for adoption into the formal policy.

The document was then thoroughly reviewed by the University’s Office of General Counsel, and then finally passed by the Faculty Senate on April 25th, 2018. This is the first time the document has been amended since it past in 1992.

Moving forward, the SGA Academic Affairs Committee will be tasked to revise the SBORR working closely with the Faculty Senate, every three years so that every student on campus, despite their length of degree has an opportunity to have their voice heard on what their rights ought to be -- both in the classroom and on campus.
