The WCL SBA maintains four separate committees: the Finance Committee, Student Affairs Committee, Groups and Organizations Committee, and Academic Affairs Committee. According to our by-laws, each Senator on SBA is required to serve on at least one standing committee. Senators may serve on more than one committee, but this is not required. Below are the committee descriptions, committee chairs and personnel assignments for the 2015-2016 academic year. You can also find the email address for each committee following its description - please contact the Committee Chair for any particular questions or concerns you may have specific to one of our committees.
Non-senators may serve on the student services and academic affairs committees. To become a voting member, you would just need to attend two meetings.
