A number of students present at the meeting had concerns over two motions proposed at the meeting, the first of which was to abolish section 3.13.4 in the SFUO constitution.
The Nov. 6 meeting of the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO)’s Board of Administration (BOA) will see motions to reduce the power of the General Assembly (GA), according to an advance copy of the motions made available to BOA members before each meeting, which was obtained by the Fulcrum.
If change is to take place on campus, the SFUO cannot do it alone—it has to be in collaboration between federated bodies, clubs, and all facets of our campus, including students at large.
The motion cited concerns that details about the position are “inaccessible to students, being absent from the SFUO constitution,” and that the holder of the position is not required to be a student.
Despite the dismissal of these promising motions, it seems that this fourth installment of the GAs has inspired students to put forth their ideas to keep our campus at its best.
