What are Standing Committees?
The S.S.A. has 8 standing committees that meet on a regular basis. These committees are chaired by one of the officers of the S.S.A. and senators sit on the committee as voting members. The committees include Financial Affairs Committee (F.A.C.), Organizational Affairs Committee (O.A.C.), Executive Board Committee (E.B.C.), Diversity and Inclusivity Council, Sustainability Council, Visibility and Outreach Council, Information Technology Committee and the Congressional Committee. Standing committees are part of the University Student Senate, SSA's legislative branch. Some committees host independent events and projects, while committees can also discuss and introduce resolutions that make their way to the full University Student Senate.
