New SBA Executive Board installed
Posted 11:28 AM by Luke
On Tuesday night the new SBA Executive Board and representatives were installed, and I had the opportunity to discuss with the new President, Matthew Morgan, the direction he sees the SBA leadership taking next year.

"The group this year did a very good job fixing the internals, so the possibility for creating positive change for the student body next year is here now," said Morgan.

He then outlined a three-fold approach to next year's SBA agenda: continuing the quality programming of the past, ensuring better communication with and dissemination of information from the SBA and the law school to the students, and building a good foundation for the future.

Citing his experience as student body president at Purdue during his undergrad tenure, Morgan says he would like to emulate the transparency of that school's student government and administration. To this end, Morgan hopes to create a Student Bar Association website where the different student organizations could go to easily add their upcoming events and activities. Student could then go to this website and automatically add any of these events to their Microsoft Outlook with a simple click of the mouse.

This website, as he envisions it, could serve to reduce volume on the student listserv, promote more visibility of student group websites, and give students an easy forum to communicate their concerns with the SBA.

Regarding his eye towards the future, Morgan states that his "top priority" is to establish a rankings committee in the fall. The committee, initially comprised of just students, would perform comparison benchmarking with IU-Indy's peer schools (geographically, academically, etc.). Then in the spring, "we would have something to take to the administration" with the hope of adding faculty to the committee.

On a final note, Morgan says he would like to see increased participation in the SBA from the several student groups, with them working together for the common good of the school and the students.
