It is an unfortunate conclusion that the Illinois Tech Student Government Association (SGA) lacks sufficient transparency or clear communication in its projects and functions. There is definitely some merit to this claim. SGA lacks a formally recognized forum for inputting feedback, and regular SGA meetings are at a somewhat inconvenient time (Wednesday nights at 9:15PM). This conception is one issue that SGA hopes to address in the upcoming semester, as expressed by Executive Vice President Sonia Kamdar. One of her primary directives for SGA this year is to “increase SGA's impact and transparency by dedicating a committee to work on events and advertising and by utilizing several means of communication with the student body.” Thus, a new project from the SGA Communication Committee will be to regularly feature updates on committee projects in every issue of TechNews. But first, we should get to know each committee of SGA and the scope of their projects. Each senator is to pick from one of these four SGA committees and from there, decide on an individual project to work on and document. In addition to representing their individual colleges, SGA senators take on campus-wide projects from one of the four Committees-Academic Affairs, Student Life, Communications, and Events.
