Brennan Hall, room 500, was the setting for Student Government’s last meeting of the semester on Friday, April 28, 2019. Starting at 3:15 p.m, Senate had multiple guests attend the meeting to discuss the chartering of additional clubs on campus. In addition, the meeting ended with a summary of the work Student Government has accomplished over the 2018-2019 school year.
This past week, Student Government approved the chartering of two additional clubs on campus: The University of Scranton Running Club and The Entrepreneurship Club, pending future approvals. The Running Club hopes to establish a community of students interested in running in a noncompetitive environment, while The Entrepreneurship Club has as its goal of providing a creative space for students to pursue business-like ventures with additional University students. Both clubs would be open to all members of the University community.
Senate Summary of the 2018-2019 Year
At the beginning of the semester, the Student Government developed a plan, ReImagining SG, that covered many aspects of the student experience. From integrating student learning into additional courses to expanding discussions concerning diversity and inclusion, Student Government had much success in accomplishing these goals.

Each meeting, Student Government invites guests to discuss topics, ideas, and proposals that various departments at the University are working on through a forum discussion.
The Importance of Diversity and Inclusion
This meeting, Student Government was very fortunate to welcome the United Cultures Organization (UCO) to talk about the importance of diversity and inclusion with respect to organizations and clubs on campus. Senate met with several UCO representatives including Camila Robles, president of UCO, who shared her own story at The University of Scranton. Senate will continue these discussions over the next weeks with the initiation of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee on campus.
