Amendment to ASMCC Constitution
Amendment to the Constitution of ASMCC adding "Shared Governance."
This amendment would create a process for shared governance and set the foundation for a student run representative organization at the Red Mountain Campus. The Red Mountain Campus has frequently struggled with adequate representation in the ASMCC process. By creating their own governing body with a President, they will be able to adequately represent the students of Red Mountain. The amendment would also remove the Vice President of Red Mountain creating the President of Red Mountain position. Additionally, the amendment would require the President of Red Mountain to create and chair a governing body representative of the student population of Red Mountain.
