The A&T Register annually assesses the Student Government Association and the Student University Activities Board based on each of the organization’s constitutions. This academic year, we have implemented a new method of assessment by sending a survey to the student body via email which allowed them to participate in the evaluation of their student leaders.

 

The student body evaluation allowed each participant to give a SGA e-board member a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F. It also allowed students to select up to 10 well known SUAB events they attended and assess them on the organization, turn out, entertainment, cultural relevance, and social interaction. The survey remained open for five days, April 1 – April 5, and more than 300 students participated.

 

The A&T Register has read and examined SGA’s Strategic Plan and SUAB’s Constitution in order to give both organizations an assessment based off of their work and not their reputation or idolization.

 

Below you will find student assessments on both SGA and SUAB, as well as a constitutional and strategic plan assessment given by the A&T Register.

 

SGA Reasoning

  • One political action week per semester X
  • One lobby day per semester in N.C. or D.C.
