Remarks FAILED - Accountability issues for this specific implementation. Participation Hours were implemented in the fall of 2005 to deal with this issue.
Whereas Constituency councils are made up of students that were directly responsible for electing each Student Congress senator; and
Whereas It is our duty as Student Congress senator to truly represent the desires of these students; and
Whereas We cannot represent the desires of the students that have elected us if we do not talk to them; and
Whereas The students who elect us as senators have every right to know how well we have represented them; and
Whereas The Constitution for the Student Community of the University of Texas at Arlington states one primary purpose of Student Congress is 'to provide for an effective means of communication between various parts of our college community'.
Be It Further Resolved That The record of each senator's constituency council attendance or monthly contact via phone/email with CC President be posted on the Student Governance bulletin board where senator voting records are currently posted. To be recorded by the Student Congress Parliamentarian.
