ASUNM Briefs for Monday, Nov. 8

The Associated Students of UNM, the University’s undergraduate student governing body, held their penultimate Senate meeting of the semester on Wednesday evening. Here are the big takeaways.

ASUNM preps second student success event

After a successful Student Success Week last month, ASUNM’s executive branch is in the planning stages for a similar event for finals.

Chief of Staff Tori Pryor said that all activities are being placed on an online scheduler that other campus groups can utilize.

“The idea with having a calendar is that not only can ASUNM plan...events, but other entities on campus that are having events that week can put them on the calendar as well,” Pryor said. “It’s a package deal.”

Pryor said to ASUNM senators at the meeting.

Other events for the upcoming Student Success Week will include help with setting spring schedules, “Operation Registration” events, study cafes and free concerts.

Bill vetoed by Hagengruber

For the first time this semester, and in her tenure as ASUNM president, Jenna Hagengruber vetoed a piece of legislation previously passed by the Senate.

Bill 17F, if signed by Hagengruger, would have placed responsibly on the chair of the finance committee to educate ASUNM agency directors on how to be responsible with their money.

“Not that I don’t think that the finance chair is completely competent...but the agency directors go through four layers (of training) to understand their budget,” Hagengruber said as she was explaining to the Senate her reason for vetoing the bill.

She said another workshop was essentially expendable.
