Student Union president junior Grace Egbo announced SU’s new goals of expanding administrative and student interactions, increasing diverse representation and encouraging greater election participation Tuesday.
Slates were eliminated from this year’s elections, so students had to individually decide to run for office. SU Exec had four uncontested positions, including president, while sophomore Mike Holtz ran against junior Hunter Malasky for vice president of administration, winning with 59.41 percent of the vote.
Senior Ammar Karimjee may be the first student in recent history to allocate Student Union’s full annual budget of more than $2.5 million twice, pending a decision by Student Union’s executive council.
Another Student Union executive slate is almost open for business. The slate’s formal candidacy announcement for SU executive office will take place in Umrath Lounge on Wednesday, according to a Facebook event created by sophomore Morgan DeBaun, current SU vice president for public relations.
