The last Student Government meeting of the semester was an unofficial meeting due to not enough senators being present for quorum. This led to the appointments of several students to the Bylaws Review Committee and Student Dean Advisory Council not being voted on.

Student Body President Noor Ul-Haash Khamisani’s executive report included information about Speaker of the Senate elections and Senate elections.

They will both be held in the Spring 2021 semester, with Senate elections specifically the first week of the spring semester.

If people plan on returning to the election or joining, they are asked to contact Khamisani for more information.
