Senate confirms SSE CEO and student representatives in virtual meeting


The 15th ASSU Undergraduate Senate held a 40-minute online meeting on Tuesday evening, in which they confirmed Neveen Mahmoud ’11 as the ASSU Financial Manager for 2013-2014, confirmed 40 nominees for University committees and passed $22,909.14 in funding bills.

Mahmoud will retain her position for, unusually, a third year. Eitan Winer Pinkas ’12 M.S. ’12 was initially appointed to the position but a human resources issue prevented him from taking the job.

Additionally, Senate Chair Ben Holston ’15 announced that, the Senate’s remaining discretionary funds for the 2012-13 academic year will be allocated, under the supervision of Treasurer Ryan Matsumoto ’16, to the Governor’s Corner Dining Society to help support legal fees stemming from its reincorporation into the University. While Senate bylaws do not require the Senate to pass a bill to allocate discretionary funds, other senators supported the decision.
