Student Senate will vote on a bill to oppose the potential LGBT Center and Multicultural Center merge at Wednesday’s meeting.

Student Senate members will also vote on 19 resolutions. 

A resolution will be presented to officiate the Bobcat Readership Program as a Student Senate initiative and to institutionalize the Bobcat Readership Program Reformation Committee into the rules and procedures. 

Another resolution would establish a mediation director as a new staff position in the rules and procedures. There will also be a resolution to updates a chapter in the Senate Appropriations Commission. Another resolution will award the Bobcat medals.

The remaining resolutions will vote on emeritus status and senior awards for 15 Student Senate members.
