Updates

Monday December 11, 2017

To: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, Faculty, Staff

From: Washington College Student Government Association

When: Monday December 11th, 2017 12:15PM

Subject: End of the Year Report

Dear Washington College Students, Faculty and Staff, 

The fall semester is coming to a close, and so is the year. The Washington College Student Government Association’s Executive Board would like to share with you everything they have accomplished over their term in the year 2017!

Over the year, the SGA has created a platform that would be best suited for the current students here at WAC. The SGA has worked diligently to try and accomplish the goals that were set forth by the platform. We have been able to reenact the Council of President’s program which has benefited the organizations we have on campus, revisited the Budget Guidelines and made them best suit the student body, and much more!

With that being said, the SGA would like to wish all students the best of luck on all of your finals. Study hard and do amazing work! Have a safe and great winter break. We cannot wait to continue working with everyone in the spring!

In Partnership,

Washington College Student Government Association

Re: Senate Update

Good Morning Members of the Senate,

Ahead of our Senate meeting tonight, we want to share with you some brief information on recent changes our organization has undergone to become compliant with College policy. 

At the conclusion of the 2015-2016 fiscal year, all College offices and departments, including ours, underwent an internal audit by the Business Office.  Financial and human resource practices were reviewed in the context of best practice and College policy, as well as State and Federal mandates.  As a result of the audit, it was determined that many of our financial and human resource practices were not in compliance with Federal, State and College policies.

The audit found that our previous method of compensation was causing inequity in our pay structure.  In addition, some of our positions were exceeding the hours allotted to work under College policy, effectively causing us to be out of compliance with the State of Maryland’s minimum wage laws.  As such, our pay structure has been changed externally, a directive of the Business Office in consultation with the Office of Human Resources.  

The current pay model is set based on a starting rate of minimum wage, with stipends based on a model of 20 hours per week over 18 weeks to accommodate for work completed outside of the semester. Additional oversight has been built into the system of compensation by requiring the SGA Advisor to review timesheets for every two-week period.  In addition, the Business Office will conduct another audit of the pay scale they set after the fall semester to ensure pay rates and stipends are set at correct amounts based on hours worked. For more information about the new pay structure, please consult the following PowerPoint.

Please review the above information and send any questions you have to SGA@washcoll.edu.  We will have a short period for questions during Senate this evening, but would like to reserve most of Senate time to introduce aspects of parliamentary procedure and discuss Senate committees.

Best,

Taylor Frey & Audrey Utchen

SGA President & Vice President
