Committees


Most of Student Assembly's work happens in committees. Each committee tackles countless issues throughout the year and updates the assembly on its progress every Monday. 

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is a closed committee that meets on an ad hoc basis.  The members are the President of the Student Assembly, Vice President of the Student Assembly, Treasurer, Secretary, Parliamentarian, Director of Publicity, and all Class Presidents. Generally, the committee is only called to meet when an issue of utmost importance cannot wait until the next Student Assembly meeting to be discussed.  The meeting has also been used to flesh out the agenda for the assembly and to get a sense for where each class stands.

Constitution Committee

The Constitution Committee advises Student Assembly on all things related to the Student Assembly Constitution. They deal with amendments, advise student assembly, and makes sure everything is in accordance with the Constitution, the Bylaws, and Robert's rules. They are also responsible for interpreting, drafting and presenting all amendments. The most recent major amendment was changing the pronouns of the constitution from gender specific to non-gender specific pronouns.

Publicity Committee

Publicity Committee focuses on increasing visibility and publicizing Student Assembly on Campus. We accomplish this through utilizing various social media, such as Twitter (@HCStudentAssm), Instagram (@hamiltoncollegesa), and Facebook. We function as a bridge between the student body and Student Assembly and hope to increase the accessibility of Student Assembly on campus. Some of the main things we have accomplished are making Student Assembly Stickers, putting up the Student Assembly bulletin board in the diner, and updating the Student Assembly website.

Funding Committee

The Funding Committee allocates money to student organizations and events that will benefit the student body. We know how hard student leaders work to prepare budgets and organize events, so in evaluating budgets the Funding Committee promises to be fair, impartial, and transparent about recommendations. Furthermore, we recognize that some of the funding rules and processes are complicated, so all of the treasurers are available for questions and we will do our best to work with you should any issues arise.

If you have any questions, contact:
Jake Engelman, jengelma@hamilton.edu or satreas@hamilton.edu

Cultural Affairs Committee

The Cultural Affairs Committee strives to promote events, causes, and initiatives that are directly aimed at enriching the campus community through exposure to, raising awareness for, or representation of issues pertaining to race, culture, sexuality, gender identity, socioeconomic class, physical ability, and/or philosophical ideology (spiritual or otherwise). The Culture Affairs Committee will co-sponsor initiatives with organizations whose objectives are directly related to the committee's agenda and will also sponsor similar programs and activities independently.

LITS Committee

The Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) Committee is responsible for student issues pertaining to library and technology use on campus.  This committee works very closely with LITS and often serves as a student voice in their decisions. Some projects the committee has worked on in the past include introducing a mobile Hamilton App, helping get the Hill Card accepted off campus, and leading the student discussion on cable TV service. In addition, the committee picks movies for the Hamilton Movie Channel and has been responsible for installing printers in more convenient locations on campus.
