Judicial Branch

The Judicial Branch is responsible for settling disputes between the other branches of the Student Government, managing the Program Assistance Fund, and coordinating Campus Elections.

LEADERSHIP

The judicial branch officer is the Chief Justice.

COMMITTEES

The judicial branch consists of two committees- the Supreme Court and the Election Supervisory Board.

The Supreme Court is made up of 7 justices (including the Chief Justice) who serve as the hearing panel for student organizations requesting funding through the Program Assistance Fund, disputes in the other two branches of Student Government, and any election code violations during Campus Elections. 

The Election Supervisory Board coordinates the Campus Elections process - drafting the election guidelines/procedures, recruiting candidates to file for the available positions, and managing the logistics of the election.
