A Bill Regarding a Student Services Grant

A Bill Regarding a Student Services Grant


  1. WHEREAS the Student Government Association is given an annual budget with the intention of improving student life on campus.
  2. WHEREAS student led initiatives can help improve the Hopkins campus and student life.
  3. WHEREAS the Student Government Association understands that student-influenced campus improvement projects may be more effective if given proper resources and guidance.
  4. THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Finance Committee shall promote a competition for a Student Services Grant of up to $5,000, which the Finance Committee will present to the student body for final approval in a timely and appropriate manner.
  5. THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Student Services Grant shall be given based on a competitive application process, as established by the Finance Committee. The student groups must submit ideas that will enhance student life or improve campus activities, which will be advertised by the Student Government Association. The initial procedures, policies, and timelines for the project will be established between the chairman of the Finance Committee and the chosen student group.
  6. THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a “student group” must be an informal collection of two or more students from any discipline with an idea for a campus improvement project. A “student group” may not be an already-established student organization, including but not limited to fraternities, sororities, on-campus clubs, and professional organizations. A “student group,” however, may include students from any or all of these organizations, so long as the “student group” does not have any binding affiliation with said organizations.
  7. THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Finance Committee shall oversee that the project is run smoothly and effectively, and shall receive weekly progress updates from the chosen student group.
  8. THEREFORE, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the project must be completed before the end of the Spring Semester 2013.


It is so ordered.
