Transcript I > %v Students* Association — Speaker of the Senate Richard Gosselin, Academics Affairs Chairperson Director of Personnel Mikal Belicove, Assistant to the President/Vice-president Felicia Provada, Assistant to the Directors Reza Malek, President Wendy Trachte, Treasurer Reed Paseur, Office Secretary Lajuan Ekwvyasi, Director of External Affairs John Davis, Vice-president Kamran Riaz. LEADERSHIP Spawns reformed student programs T he 25th Students' Association had a year they could look back to with pride. Under the leadership of President Wendy Tracte, SA stood up for students on many issues, including the allocation of student service fees, parking, disciplinary policy, child care and financial aid. The SA Senate passed over 65 pieces of legislature, more than any SA senate in recent years. Topics of these bills and resolutions ranged from the control of graduate and undergraduate tuition to commending the dry rush policy of the Greek system. In Spring, Speaker of the Senate Deron Gooden resigned from his post, but the Senate never broke stride as Richard Gosselin, the Speaker Pro-tempore, took the reins and finished out the year. Many students took advantage of SA's ombudsman service, bringing problems and concerns with various aspects of the university community to SA. Making sure UH students were well represented was another hallmark of SA. Student membership on university standing committees was over 98 percent, an all-time record. Perhaps most important of any of the 25th SA's accomplishments is the working relationship it established with UH administration. Administrators began to see students as impoi tant resources in planning for the future, and reflected this by asking SA to provide student members for the six- year strategic planning committees. When SM said "no" to the proposed move of the UH System Offices, admir istration listened. The 25th Students Association should stand out as nothing less than exceptional By listening to students SA has felt the heart beat and the pulse of thf student body. By talking to administrators, Si has built a reputation of a force to work with, not against. This is a mod< for responsible student government, a mode others would do well to follow in the future ► Lee Grooms 144 ■ Organizations
