Transcript While Representing Peers In UH Student Association For the UH Student Association, 1966-67 was the year of three presidents, controversy, NSA, heated elections and more controversy. UHSA is the governing body of all UH students. Its primary aim is to assist and represent the student. By working in UHSA students have the opportunity to control their own affairs, to influence the direction of their education and to be active citizens of the University community. Students involved in UHSA work in one of three branches. At the head of the executive branch are the president and the vice-president who are elected by the student body. The president appoints a staff and cabinet to work with him in this branch. Under the executive branch's supervision are numerous agencies and ten executive departments. Richard Gaghagen began the year as SA president but his vice-president, John Mattern, took office in the spring when Gaghagen resigned to concentrate on his studies. Jim Evans took office after winning the SA elections in March and he will serve during the 1967-68 school year. UHSA's legislative branch consists of the Student Senate, the Organizations Board, the Election Commission and the University Center Policy Board and Program Council. As the legislative body, the Senate consists of representatives elected on the basis of enrollment in the nine col leges, the Downtown School and the Graduate School. Most of the controversy and debate marking the year for the Senate was stirred by UHSA's membership in the United States National Student Association (NSA). UH joined NSA in the fall after the Senate voted its approval of such a move. The pros and cons of UH's membership in the controversial organization provided the main campaign issue for the Senate elections and remained a hot issue for debate among Senators and interested students until the school year ended. The judicial branch of UHSA consists of the Student Court and the Traffic Appeals Board. The Student Court is composed of a chief justice and four associate justices. This court has jurisdiction over cases arising under the SA constitution and laws and has appellate jurisdiction concerning violations of the Election Code. The Traffic Appeals Board consists of four students appointed by the SA president and a faculty member. The board considers appeals from students who have received tickets for traffic violations on campus. A record number of suits were brought before the Student Court in the spring as a result of one of the most heated SA elections in UH history. The court reviewed charges and counter-charges of election code violations. John Mattern presides over his first senate meeting after Richard Gaghagan resigned as Student Association President. Gaghagan stands by in an advisory capacity as Sharee Berry, secretary of SA, records the senate proceedings. 343
