Sarah Round was Director of Operations for the 110th Session and Student Senate Vice Chair for Senate Session XVI.

Goals for Session XVI

  • Transform the Senate into a proactive rather than reactive body. Firstly, instead of only waiting for Senator applications, go to Off-Campus Student Association, Panhellenic, IFC, and RHSA meetings and encourage those groups to use their Senate seats, encourage Senators to attend meetings regularly, and encourage those groups to write legislation.
  • Work with the Director of Diversity Efforts to reach out to Commissions and RSOs to encourage those groups to use their Senate seats, encourage Senators to attend regularly, and encourage those groups to write legislation.
  • In addition, reach out to Commuters and incoming students by providing a flyer to be given out during orientation sessions and the quarterly orientation sessions offered to transfer students.

  • Each Senator is more then a Senator within their constituency; they are a liaison of the Association to their constituents. If elected Vice-Chair my goal would be to strengthen this position of a liaison by creating a summary email with bill information and upcoming ASUW volunteer opportunities to be forwarded to the list serves of each constituency by the Senator.
  • Increase the Senate’s presence on campus through supporting the efforts and contributing ideas to the Publicity, Outreach, and Membership Committee.
  • Increase the participation of new Senators by developing an orientation program, empowering them to write legislation, and have legislation brainstorming sessions at the beginning of each quarter.
  • Ensure Senate is following the Senate Constitution, Bylaws, and Alice Sturgis’s Parliamentary Procedure rules (except in times when it conflicts with the rules and bylaws, a rule found in the beginning of the Senate Rules document). Additionally, ensure the Senate rules and bylaws are being followed.
  • Through membership on the Oversight committee, work to keep Senate liaisons accountable and have reports on file from the meetings attended by each liaison.
  • Work with the ASUW webmaster to create a user friendly Senate website with up to date minutes and include the summaries of Senate Meetings written for the Board of Directors on the Senate website.
  • Assist in the writing and drafting of Senate legislation.
  • Ensure the interests of Senate are being represented within the Board of Directors.

Other Positions Held

  • ASUW Ambassadors, Ambassador
  • ASUW Senate, Alpha Delta Pi Senator
  • Academic Affairs Committee, member
  • ASUW Ambassadors Taskforce, Senate Liaison
  • Judicial Committee, at-large member
