Policy Governing Major Student Organization

In matters of an all-university nature (e.g., Academics, Administration, Fiscal), it is recognized that the Student Government Association is the duly constituted representative body for the students. The Student Government Association must recognize the specialized area of jurisdiction of the other campus organizations, and should give whatever help and assistance is desired. Living area governmental bodies (Inter-Hall Council, Student Tenant Union), Greek letter governmental bodies (Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic), and University Union Board, shall deal with problems within their realm, but should refer problems of an all-university nature to the Student Government Association.

Likewise, Student Government Association should refer problems of a specialized nature to one of the above mentioned groups if it falls within its province. In situations where areas of responsibility overlap, Student Government Association should take the initiative to coordinate efforts of all organizations concerned and should help formulate an all-university policy.
