Student Body Association

SBA Student Senate

The Student Senate exercises legislative power over those areas of collegiate activity that are the responsibility of students; it is the legislature of Millsaps College, developing and sponsoring legislation for the betterment of the college. The senate shall serve as spokesperson for the Student Body Association on all matters of student concern.

The SBA is at its best only when we all get involved! Senate meetings are open to all students, Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m., located in Christian Center 122.

Senators
Senators are elected at the beginning of the fall semester. Senators serve for the duration of the school year; open seats are filled by appointments by the president, and by a second election held in the second semester.

Senators represent the following constituencies: Freshman Class, Sophomore Class, Junior Class and Senior Class.

Missing senate meeting: If you will be missing a senate meeting please fill out this form.

Programs & Activities Council

A committee of students is chosen each fall to assist with development, facilitation and evaluation of PAC events. This includes coming up with event ideas, marketing and promotion of events and providing staffing support for events.

Student Conduct Council

  • The Millsaps Student Conduct System is not intended to mirror that of any court system. The policies and procedures used are not meant to resemble those in the criminal process. There is a fundamental difference in the nature of student discipline and that of criminal law. Student discipline is meant to maintain a positive living and learning environment. The process is designed to help students make positive choices for themselves, choosing self-responsibility instead of submitting to peer-pressure, and to challenge them to accept responsibility for any negative choices.
  • The Student Conduct Council exercises judicial power over those areas of collegiate activity that are the responsibility of students, including the power of sanctioning individuals; it is the Judicial branch of Millsaps College. The Student Conduct Council holds hearings and makes judgments towards the general policy of the Student Body Association; it has jurisdiction over student disciplinary cases.
  • Information on our Constitution/Bylaws may be found in Major Facts Student Handbook, the student handbook.

Student and Organization Funding Allocation Procedures

If you would like to request money for travel expenses and organizational events, feel free to follow our simple Budgetary Guidelines:

  1. The organization must be registered with the Office of Student Life in order to apply for funding. If it is not, email Ryan Upshaw. Disregard this if you are applying for student travel funds.
  2. To request funds, fill out this form at least 14 business days prior to your event. No late requests will be accepted. Students will have to adjust the date of their event if the funding request is not submitted on time.
  3. Once your form is received, you will meet with the SBA finance committee to discuss what exactly the requested funds will be used for (note that more detailed requests normally receive more money).
  4. Then the finance committee will make a recommendation to the senate at the next SBA meeting and the senate will vote on the recommendation. You might be asked to come to senate in order to answer questions from the senators. It is important to note that not all funding requests are approved.
  5. The organization’s leaders and the organization’s adviser will be notified of the amount given to the organization and instructions on how to access the funding.
  6. If the organization needs more funding throughout the semester, they can repeat steps 2-5. Additional funding requests are not guaranteed over the course of the year and are based on the SBA budget.

SBA reserves the right to use judgment and discretion when allocating funding.
