Elections for Cabinet positions for the upcoming academic year will be held in the spring of the previous year (example: for the 2018-2019 academic year, elections will be held in spring 2018). At-Large elections will occur in fall of the academic year.
For 2018-2019, applications for Cabinet elections are due Thursday, March 29th at 5 pm. Elections will begin Monday, April 2nd and end at 5 pm Friday, April 13th.
There are 5 Cabinet positions:
President, Vice-president, Treasurer, Vice-president for Marketing, and Liaison for Student Organizations. For more detailed descriptions of each position, visit the Constitution link from the Student Senate homepage.
In addition to the 5 Cabinet positions, the following student organizations will determine a designee to attend all Senate meetings that which hold voting power in addition to the Cabinet and At-Large positions: Advocates, Black Student Union, Commuter Student Association, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Goshen Student Women’s Association, International Student Club, and Latino Student Union. These designees will be determined by the student organization and cannot be a student holding a President or Vice-resident position within the organization.
Students who will not be on campus one semester of the academic year may run as a ticket with someone who will be on campus the semester they are absent. For example, if John is going on SST in fall but Katie is going on SST in spring, they may run as one Student Senate ticket and fill the position. However, these tickets cannot hold the President position in cabinet. In these instances, both students on the ticket must fill out an election application but only submit one short answer response.
