SAC appoints SRR

On Monday, Xavier's Student Activities Council (SAC) submitted its recommendations for the appointed positions of Students Rights Representative, LGBTQ Training and Support Intern, Board of Elections and Student Conduct Liaison. The appointments still need to be voted on next Monday. The University Committee Appointments were also announced Monday. The Students Rights Representative (SRR) provides support to students going through Xavier's judicial process to ensure "fair and impartial justice for all

students," according to the SAC web-site. Brendan Chisholm was announced as the 2012-2013 candidate

for SRR. Sarah Ciabotti was appointed the 2012-2013 LGBTQ Training and Support Intern. The position is a 16-week paid internship focused on creating a needs assessment for LGBTQ students and creating a training

program to make Xavier a more welcoming environment for the LGBTQ community. The intern is also responsible for comparing Xavier's initiatives with those of other universities to cite areas that need improvement. The Board of Elections (BoE) is responsible for holding SGA elections, ensuring that all election procedures are followed properly, and announcing election results. So far this year's BoE consists

of the team of senior Brock McMorran (Chair), Jamie Updike

(Senior Rep.), Larry Chapman (Junior Rep.) and Jayson Lerman (Sophomore Rep.). The final position, Student Conduct Liaison (SCL), is new for the Spring 2012 semester and will be decided at the end of the week with nine applicants being considered. The SCL position is aimed

at creating an alternative to the documentation system where

students normally pay monetary fines to Residence Life for conduct violations. According to a press release courtesy of the SGA executive team, the SCL position "will be

responsible for establishing a relationship with service sites around the Cincinnati area that students can opt into after they are found responsible for their first monetary infraction within the University conduct system." The SCL will also be responsible for tracking hours completed by students and reporting them to a conduct officer. A crucial step in the implementation of this promised position was gaining the support of Residence Life, which was accomplished

in a meeting on April 2. "I'm very excited about the potential that comes with the creation of this position and the fact that Residence Life is willing to go ahead with this position,"

junior SGA president Seth Walsh said. "This is something students should see come into effect next August when they all return. I think it will address a very real student need on campus."
