UW-Eau Claire wants you for Student Senate.
|Deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. Friday.|
The Senate is looking to temporarily fill seven positions before its elections in March.
There is a need to fill two director and five senator positions, Senate public relations director Adrian Klenz said.
“The main thing we’re pushing is the budget situation,” Klenz said. “They’re (the state government) making cuts and they’re going to make more cuts in the future.
Senate wants to get students involved in the whole issue so they can be vocal, Klenz said.
Applications for two on-campus and three off-campus senators, director of the Academic Affairs Commission and director of the Information Technology Commission are due by 4:30 p.m. Friday at the Senate office in Davies Center.
Senate members will conduct interviews Sunday.
If all goes well, Klenz said, final decisions will be made Sunday night.
The temporary senators and directors will be involved in the segregated fee budget meeting on Monday.
“We’ve got educational papers to tell them what the major issues are,” Senate President Sarah Schuh said.
Current Senate members also will help incorporate the incoming staff, Schuh said.
Other items approaching on the Senate’s agenda include the possibility of a Davies’ expansion and the United Council referendum.
Klenz said the incoming staff will take on the typical “duties of a senator,” such as attending Monday meetings.
There are nine commissions and each one has several committees, which Schuh said cover enough topics to interest any student on campus.
