1 CALL TO ORDER 2:05PM

2 ROLL CALL: All are present including S. St. Cyr

3 M. Martinez presented verbal appeal

Exit M. Martinez

4 Elections: Appeal: S. St. Cyr

Proposal: Allow M. Martinez to run for 2015-2016 President while not meeting GPA requirement

Discussion:

-       Outcomes

  • S. St. Cyr approves M. Martinez to run for 2015-2016 ASC President
  • M. Martinez has a 2.8 GPA, requirement is 3.0
  • The reason she has a low GPA is because she failed a class the year before, but is now retaking the class and doing much better
  • Will have a very much higher GPA after this semester. When she gets in office, she will have a GPA high enough

-       Decisions

  • Think GPA to get on ASC should be 2.8, there’s still a huge pool of qualified candidates as a 2.8 GPA
  • We are here for so much more than school, even though school is a priority
  • No-brainer to allow her to run
  • We know what she’s capable of, a very highly qualified candidate
  • What if in the future, they don’t allow someone to run with a 2.8, the stipulations are different for each team
  • We’ve seen her functioning at this level with a large class load, doing very well
  • The same situation happened in 2012
  • This group is much more biased
    • S. St. Cyr thinks we need to become more graceful and open to new people so ASC is not a clique
    • Everyone has a different opinion of grades and what is acceptable

-       Actions

  • Reps just need to approve constitutionally before she can officially run for president
