Over the last few years we have seen many changes at UIS and many changes to the way your Student Government works. Today we are at a crossroads, where we see that reforms are needed within the SGA to make it more accountable, more reliable, and more capable of doing work in the future. In order for us to continue working in your best interest we have come up with changes to our own constitution that will allow us to prepare for the future needs of the students and for the needs of UIS as a whole.
Our current constitution has served us well for several years and has been able to perform well; we saw that it needed some changes. Most of the changes are minor technical changes that clarify confusing points, eliminate old language, and clean up other areas. However there are some major changes being made as well. These are described below.
These changes are important and we urge you to vote yes on them on your ballot so that your SGA will be better able to work for you and represent UIS to the highest standard.
Sincerely,The University of Illinois Springfield Student Government Association
