Northeastern, among other urban universities, is a huge catalyst of gentrification.
On Monday, the Student Government Association (SGA) held a town hall to hear opinions from the student body on five referenda under consideration. Among the submitted referenda was a proposal from Students Against Institutional Discrimination (SAID) to initiate a democratic redrafting of the SGA Constitution to make the group more responsive to the student body. The referendum proposal is supported by a broad coalition of student organizations who have been frustrated for years by the Association’s structural flaws, which prevent representatives from being accountable to their constituents.
Eric Tyler and Morgan Helfman are to serve as SGA president and vice president after beating out their opponents by a margin of just 50 votes. Tyler will replace current Student Body President Noah Carville.
Voting on the future Student Government Association (SGA) president and executive vice president as well as various referenda is set to open on myNEU on Thursday, March 26. The two platforms, IgniteNU and EngageNU, are driven by Eric Tyler with Morgan Helfman and John Finn with Neel Desai, respectively.
Student government election season is coming, and that means voting not just for student body president and executive vice president but also voting on various referenda.
The Student Government Association (SGA) voted on potential referenda for the annual student government elections on Monday, March 16. The referenda gives the student body the opportunity to vote on ideas deemed feasible, fair and in accordance with university policy by SGA.
