Administrative Initiatives

Temple administration and student government are too often disconnected and unknown by the majority of the student body. ReimagineTU will bring together student organizations to understand their needs better and work to improve outreach to the student body that their government is made to represent. 

Student Org Revamp

Currently, the Office of Student Activities is required to treat all student organizations exactly the same, giving them the same privileges; this setup makes sense in theory, however, when social justice organizations and clubs dedicated to leisure activities are equated, problems arise. 

Breaking it down...

(Written by Ray Epstein, Presidential Candidate)

Currently, the Office of Student Activities is required to treat all student organizations exactly the same, giving them the same privileges; this setup makes sense in theory, however, when social justice organizations and clubs dedicated to leisure activities are equated, problems arise. Student organizations are not allowed to put up a flier for more than two weeks, even if the flier is solely dedicated to providing information about resources for mental health, sexual assault, or support groups. Resources do not have an expiration date, and two weeks is certainly too little time for important information to be displayed.

 

Student organizations are also prohibited from spending their Temple-allocated funds on T-shirts; T-shirts are one of the enticing aspects of joining a student organization, and there should not be an obstacle to showing off the community you are part of when the money exists to acquire them. 

ReimagineTU intends to create a student organization survey for executive board members. This survey would collect information from clubs which fall into differing categories (social justice, leisure, political, etc) and gain insight into their differing needs. Using this information from this survey, the Office of Student Activities would be able to revise standards on the basis on student organization classification.
