Organizations

Senate will vote next week to grant chartered status to the Speech & Debate club, TREAT (talent recruitment and entertainment agency team) and Mustang Mavericks.

Finance

Senate voted to fund the Anthropology Club $170 (originally requested $2,646) and Asian Council $1,305 (originally requested $1,185).

Up for vote next week:

  • Women’s Interest Network is requesting $252 for their Sexual Assault Awareness Week, including Take Back the Night. The Finance Committee (FC) recommends funding in full.
