Proclamation and Resolutions
One of the functions of the Legislation and
Drafting committee is the responsibility to issue, draft and edit proclamations
and resolutions. These documents are a reflection of the student will. Any
student can write and come forward with a resolution or proclamation. If you have
an idea for one you can also contact a CU Denver SGA representative and we will
help you draft your idea into a resolution or proclamation.
A proclamation serves as a declaration of support for a particular issue
whether local, state wide, or national. It is a document that shows solidarity
with a particular issue at hand. For instance, if a national tragedy were to
occur, and if a student, or a student representative felt it necessary that
this issue should be recognized, then it would be appropriate to issue a
proclamation. You can view an example bellow.
A resolution deals with immediate, action specifically for CU Denver students.
If a student, or a student representative feels that a conflict has arisen in their institution and does not have a clear solution
then that party can craft a resolution. A resolution will effectively identify
and resolve that conflict through meetings via the Legislation and Drafting
committee meeting with the proper offices, administrators, etc.
