Wright State University (WSU) Student Government Association (SGA) met on November 23 to discuss Resolution 21-03, COVID-19 vaccination requirements and upcoming events.

Resolution 21-03

SGA voted on resolution 21-03, which proposes that WSU allow electronic payment services, such as Venmo, for student organizations for fundraising purposes.

“Without Wright State’s approval to use these electronic payment services, student organizations face barriers to fundraising,” said Vice President Sabrina D’Alesandro.

SGA voted on the resolution and adopted it unanimously.

COVID vaccination obligation

On November 11, WSU Communications sent an email announcing that all WSU employees should be vaccinated against COVID in response to President Biden’s Executive Order 14042. This includes students.

All WSU employees must submit proof of their immunization status or obtain an exemption for medical or religious reasons by January 4, 2022.

Updates and Announcements

Academic Affairs Director Krista Long is working to resolve issues related to applying for the LGBTQ scholarship.

Currently, the application does not allow locked students to have the possibility of financing themselves without leaving. Parents have power of attorney over Wings accounts and can see their child’s response.

“They have to choose ‘No’ because they don’t want to talk to their family. So we’re trying to solve this problem so that students don’t have to choose security over funding in case they might not be accepted by their families, ”Long said.

Another change underway is the integration of writing course approval policies. Director of Internal Affairs Garrett Regan attended the Undergraduate Academic Policy Committee (UAPC) meeting and discussed the policy with them.

UAPC discussed the updated requirements for integrated writing in exceptional circumstances, such as the inability of students to take required courses because they were not offered.

“Students will have the opportunity to write a paper under the direction of a faculty member and this will then count towards their integrated writing credit and it will need to be approved by their department chair’s report,” Regan said.

Also in new business, SGA President Dai’Shanae Moore resigned on Nov. 22, according to SGA President Jonathan Ciero.

Events to come

SGA also discussed upcoming events including the start.

Masks will be mandatory at the start and spacing will be encouraged but not mandatory. Graduates will be seated three feet apart. Graduates who were unable to walk last spring can come back for a walk if they wish.

Other upcoming events include the Engineers Without Borders euchre tournament on December 3 at 5 p.m. Located in the Apollo room, it costs $ 8 for students and $ 10 for non-students. It will be on the theme “Index” and prizes will be awarded to students.
