Advisory Groups

 
A number of Boards and Advisory Groups have been established to provide input and direction for the efforts of the Division of Student Affairs. Many of these groups have student members who are appointed by the President of the Student Government Association. Contact SGA to express your interest in being involved.

Find information on the following:

  • Multicultural Affairs Committee
  • Student Activities Budget Committee
  • Student Media Advisory Boards
    • The Colonnade Advisory Board
    • WGUR Advisory Board

Multicultural Affairs Committee
The committee serves as an advocate for minority students and is involved in all areas affecting student's lives at Georgia College. It also makes recommendations for educational services and experiences which are designed to enable minority students to successfully achieve educational goals.

 


Student Activities Budget Committee
The purpose of this committee shall be to oversee and manage the allocation and use of the student activity fee funds as an advisory board to the University President. For details see: Student Activities Budget Committee (pdf).

 


Student Media Advisory Board
The Student Media Advisory Board shall serve as an advisory board to the vice president and dean of students on all policies and procedures for student media on the Georgia College campus. All media which are supported in whole or in part by funds from student activities fees shall be defined as student media and shall be under the jurisdiction of the Student Media Advisory Board.

Georgia College provides advisers to the student media. Advisers guide rather than censor. Student media are free to exercise their rights under the first amendment guarantees, with no restraints beyond the limitations of ethical and legal responsibilities in matters of libel, obscenity, and invasion of privacy. Publications, both oral and written, are expected to conform to professional ethics and standards.

The following advisory boards have been established under the Academic Affairs Division to provide leadership and direction for the student newspaper and the student radio station:

The Colonnade Advisory Board:

  • Publisher of The Colonnade - Chair
  • The Director of media services
  • One journalism major appointed by the faculty coordinator of the major program
  • One student appointed by the Student Government Association President
  • Editor of The Colonnade
WGUR Advisory Board:
  • Director of media services - Chair
  • Student activities representative
  • WGUR staff adviser
  • Student station manager
  • One student appointed by the Student Government Association President
These boards shall have the option to elect from the voting membership a vice-chair and a secretary.

The media advisory boards shall advise the vice president and dean of students in the following areas:

  1. Development and/or approval of operational policies for student media.
  2. Approval of student media budgets and student staff salaries.
  3. Recommendations for reallocation of funds within student media budgets.
  4. Approval of any individual student media contracts in accordance with Georgia College procedures.
  5. Approval of candidates for head student media positions (editors and station managers) according to minimum standards as determined by the Student Media Advisory Board.
  6. Declaration of vacant positions and recommendation of student media positions according to procedures enumerated by the Student Media Advisory Board.
  7. Chartering of all student media and determination of the interpretation of individual student media rights and responsibilities.
  8. Submission of the student media budgets for each fiscal year to the SABC.

Amendments to all the foregoing guidelines must be presented in writing at a meeting and voted upon at the next meeting by a majority of the Student Media Advisory Board members.
