COUNCIL PLAN:
SGC Proposal Outlined

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

hIRE

EDITOR'S NOTE: Below is a state-
ment of the text of the revised Stu-
dent Government Council proposal,
to be presented for student body vot-
ing on Dec. 8-9.

(4>

WEREAS there has been a
growing need for a well-established
and official form of student govern-
ment "on the campus of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, and
WHEREAS there has been an
awareness that such student gov-
ernment should adequately reflect
student opinion and be properly
integrated with other agencies on
the campus, and
WHEREAS there has been a
careful study of student govern-
ment and, a plan proposed by a
committee known as the Laing
Committee, such-plan to be known
as the Student Government Coun-
cil, and
WHEREAS this plan has been
discussed and approved in prin-
ciple by representative student
groups and leaders, and has been
referred to the Officers and Re-
gents of the University, and
WHEREAS the Regents, by State
constitutional mandate, are charg-
ed with responsibilities of manage-
ment of all affairs of the Univer-
sity, and cannot delegate those re-
sponsibilities without also holding
the right to apiraise, modify, or
suspend said delegations and acts
of their agents, and
WHEREAS the Regents have au-
thorized the students of the Uni-
versity to ascertain campus opin-
ion on the proposed Student Gov-
ernment Council by some adequate
ballot or poll and report such re-
sults to the Regents,
THEREFORE, the plan describ-
ed in the attached document is be-
ing presented to the students of the
University of Michigan on Decem-
ber 8 and 9 at the time of the all-
campus elections, and the results
of the voting will be reported to the
Regents at their meeting on De-
cember 17, 1954, with the request
that if a majority of those voting
favor the adoption of the Student
Government Council, the students
respectfully request the Regents
to authorize adoption of the plan
and that it be put into effect as
soon thereafter as feasible.
Recommendations
The Committee Recommends:
I. that the present Student Af-
fairs Committee be replaced by a
Student Government Council and
a Board of Review.
II. that the Council be composed
of eleven elected and seven ex-of-
ficio campus leaders.
III. that it assume the functions
of student government outlined be-
low (3. Functions). The proposed
plan is intended to affect the func-
tions of no agency of student gov-
ernment other than the Student Af-
fairs Committee and the Student
Legislature.
IV. that a full time Administra-
tive Secretary be appointed by the
Vice-President for Student Affairs.
V. that the Administrative Sec-
retary shall be responsible for no-
tifying the Board of Review, the
proper administrative officials, and
the Daily Official Bulletin of The
Michigan Daily of all proceedings
of the council within twenty-four
hours of adoption. The actions of
the council will take effectswithin
ninety-six hours of publication in
the Daily Official Bulletin, subject
to the provisions of paragraph
three entitled Function under sec-
tion on Board of Review.
VI. that the Board of Review be
composed of the Dean of Men, the
Dean of Women, three faculty
members, and two students.
Proposed Plan
STUDENT GOVERNMENT
COUNCIL
1. Composition.
Eighteen students, eleven to be
elected, seven ex-officio-namely
the highest student officer in thea
Michigan Union, Michigan League,
Pan Hellenic Association, Assem-
bly Association, Interfraternity
Council, Inter-House Council, The

Michigan Daily.
STARTING
FRIDAY

2. Officers.
President, Vice-President, Treas-
urer. (Elected from among the
eleven elected members by the
whole Council at the first meeting
after -each election.) The Adminis-
trative Secretary should be thei
secretary of the Student Govern-
ment Council and should record
proceedings but have no vote.
3. Functions.
a. In accordance with Regental
and administrative policy
1) To recognize new campus
organizations.
2) To approve or deny ap-
proval for student-sponsored
activities
3) To make rules governing
eligibility of students partici-
pating in extra-curricular ac-
tivities above and beyond a
grade point average estab-
lished by schools and colleges
except for eligibility for par-
ticipation in inter-collegiate
athletics
b. In accordance with Regental,
administrative, and Joint Judi-
ciary policies, to withdraw rec-
ognition and reactivate can'-
pus organizations
c. To coordinate and to delegate
student activities to be carried
on by recognized campus
groups
d. To originate student projects
e. To express student opinion
f. To provide orderly means for
student discussion of campus
issues, particularly by means
of a forum.
g. To serve as an appointing body
for the selection of the mem-
bers of the Joint Judiciary
Council and student represen-
tatives to approved commit-
tees and organizations
h. To administer such finances as
may be designated for its use
and supervision
i. To adopt operating procedures,
subject to provisions of this
document, to carry out the
functions of student govern-
ment as herein described.
4. Elections.
a. The eleven elected members
should be elected from the
campus at large according to
the prevailing practice of the
single transferable ballot. The
conduct of elections should
follow the accepted procedure
now in use for campus elec-
tions, with the modification
that 350 names be required on
a nomination petition; these
names to be certified by the
Joint Judiciary Council.
b. Their terms should be for one
year. In order to provide for
overlapping terms, six mem-
bers should be elected at the
first election for a full year
and five be elected for one se-
fnester. Thereafter elections
should be held every semester
for year terms.
C. By means of petition, inter-
view, and appointment, the
Council would fill vacancies
occurring between elections'.
These interim appointments
would extend only until the
next election. Elections to fill
vacancies would be for only
the unexpired portion of the
original term.
5. Procedures
a. A quorum should consist of
two-thirds of the existing
membership
b. Notice of time, place, and
agenda should be published
in the Daily Official Bulletin
in advance of each meeting.
c. All meetings should be open
to the campus, and, by vote
of the Council, non-members
could be given an opportunity
to speak under conditions de-
termined by the Council.
d. Official proceedings of the
Council, furnished by the Ad-
ministrative Secretary, should

be published promptly after
the close of each meeting in
the Daily Official Bulletin.
RATIONALE
A Student Government Council of
eighteen members, by reason of
its compact size, should be able to
operate effectively. Its close at-
tention to policy making would ne-
cessitate delegating to other cam-
pus organizations, existing or ad
hoc, the operating of numerous ac-
tivities now conducted by the Stu-
dent Legislature.
The combination in the Council
of seven ex-officio members and
eleven elected members should as-
sure a body of high competence.
The inclusion of ex-officio mem-
bers, as the history of the Student
Affairs Committee has demonstrat-
ed, should provide experienced
leadership.-
The inclusion of eleven elected
members should provide superior
campus representation. Since not
more than six would normally be
chosen in a single semester, the
elections should be highly selec-
tive,
BOARD OF REVIEW
1. Composition.
Seven members; Dean of Men,
Dean of Women, two students, and
three faculty members. One of the
two student members should be
the president of the Student Gov-
ernment Council. The other should
be appointed by the Council but
not necessarily from its member-
ship. The three faculty members
should be members of the Senate
and should be nominated by the
Senate Advisory Committee and
appointed by the President.. Such
appointments should be for a term
of three years, and no faculty
member should immediately suc-
ceed himself on the Board. To prp-
vide overlapping terms, the ini-
tial appointments should be for
one, two, and three years respec-
tively.
2.. . Officers.
Chairman, Vice-Chairman (elect-
ed by the whole Board from among
the faculty members). The Admin-
istrative Secretary should be the
Secretary of the Board of Review
and should record proceedings but
have no vote.
3. Function.
The Board should review actions
of the Council according to the fol-
lowing procedure:
The Chairman or Vice-Chairman
would call a meeting of the Board
at the request of any of its mem-
bers when there was a point at is-
sue. Points at issue would arise
when an action of the Council
a. involved a question of the
Council's jurisdiction, or
b. required further consideration
in view of Regental policy or
administrative practice.
A quorum should consist of four
members, one of whom should be
a dean, one a faculty member, and
one a student. In the absence of
the Dean of Men or the Dean of
Women, a representative from
their respective offices could serve
on the Board. No other member of
the Board could be represented by
proxy.
The Board's declaration of intent
to review, by announcing a meet-
ing, should be made within four
days of publication in the Daily Of-
ficial Bulletin of the Council's ac-
tion. Publication in the Daily Offi-
cial Bulletin of intent to review an
action would operate as a stay of
that action.
RATIONALE
The wisdom of the use of a tri-
partite board composed of admin-
istration, faculty, and student' per-
sonnel as suggested for the Board
of Review, has been demonstrated
by the successful operation of many
existing committees, particularly
the Student Affairs Committee.
Inclusion of the President of the
Council would provide for liaison

Graduate Record Examination: Appli-
cation blanks for the Jan. 27 adminis-
tration of the Graduate Record Exami-
nation are now available at 110 Rack-
ham Building. Application blanks are
between the Council and the Board;
inclusion of the Dean of Men and
the Dean of Women would recog-
nize their obvious responsibilities;
inclusion of the members of the
Senate would retain faculty assist-
ance in student activities.
Provision for appeal according to
a time schedule permits the Coun-
cil's actions to become ef ective
without undue delay, but at the
same time provides adequatesafe-
guards against hasty decisions.
Addendum
Intrinsic in the report is the im-
plication of a need for financing
student government as so care-
fully outlined by the Laing Com-
mittee. A full examination of pos-
sible methods of finance led that
committee to the recommendation
that an assessment per student per
semester, levied on all students
and payable at registration, was
the most satisfactory method. This
method has been explored by stu-
dent body leaders in the past and
is acceptable to the student body.
