The Student Government Association gave an update on some of its ongoing affairs during Tuesday’s meeting.

Senator Zach Jones said possible locations are being discussed for sand volleyball courts on campus.

“We laid out three areas,” said Jones. “One was down by Zacharias, but there are some flood issues, so we really made that a third option. The top two were on South Lawn, the upper part near the Guthrie Bell Tower. We thought that would be a good area. Another location that would be a combined effort between SGA, Intramural and HRL would be behind McCormack.

SGA has spent about $2,800 on legislative discretionary spending this semester so far.

SGA President Nicki Taylor called for an executive action for the establishment of a Special Cultural and Diversity Affairs Committee. The executive action passed with no debate.

Taylor said the Special Cultural and Diversity Affairs Committee’s general membership is open to all university students.

“This is to make sure we are representing diversity in all aspects here at SGA,” Taylor said.

The committee plans to work with offices such as the International Student Office, Disability Services and Veterans’ Affairs.

Bill 7-14-F, Organizational Aid Appropriations for the Kentucky Public Health Association WKU Student Chapter, passed with no debate. This bill allocated $500 to the chapter for the cost of attending a conference.  Admittance to the conference is $30 per student and 40 students plan to attend. 

Resolution 4-14-F, Resolution to Support Adopting a Nonsectarian Prayer Policy, was tabled.
