In a meeting that lasted over three hours, the 16th Undergraduate Senate met Tuesday night, setting a special election for funding reform and taking a stance on sexual assault reform efforts led by the University and the ASSU’s Executive Branch.
In response to Tuesday’s veto of a funding reform bill, the Undergraduate Senate held a meeting on Saturday, overriding the Executive’s veto with a 12 to 3 vote, which was more than the two-thirds majority needed to override the executive veto.
Many a Stanford student goes through their time on campus, perceiving the ASSU as some enigmatic, mystical organization doing important things and making important decisions on behalf of the student body.
With three-quarters of their term in office completed, this year’s ASSU Executives and members of the 15th Undergraduate Senate sat down with The Daily to discuss their accomplishments in office to date and what remains to be done.
With two late entrants to the ASSU executive race Wednesday afternoon, a total of six slates have officially announced their bids for the top two spots in Stanford student government.
