The Collins Board of Governors (BOG) is the legislative body of the Collins Student Government, and it is made up of one or two Governors from every floor in Collins. The Board of Governors has 3 main responsibilities:
What Does BoG Do?
1) It is one of the boards responsible for allocating student fee money by funding projects in the Collins community.
2) It serves as a forum in which student concerns can be heard and addressed.
3) It fulfills other miscellaneous legislative roles delegated to it by the Collins Constitution.
The Board of Governors typically meets every-other Sunday night.
BOG meetings are open to all residents, but Floor Governors or their proxies are the only ones who may vote.
What Exactly Does BoG Fund?
BoG is notorious for funding floor events and Q-projects, but BoG will fund pretty much anything!
In the past BoG has helped fund large Collins and campus-wide events, trips (sign up sheets can usually be found in the duty office), and other various events/projects. BoG has also collected donations for Middle Way house, donated money to the Collins library, and supported Collin's men's and women's Little 500 teams.
How Do I Get Money From BoG?
Fill out this Proposal Form and email it to VP BOG.
Once a Project Proposal form has been completed, the student submitting the proposal should come to the BOG meeting to answer any questions the Floor Governors may have about the proposal. (If they do not come to the meeting, there is a better chance the proposal will not be funded entirely or at all.)
For proposals that have a “per-head cost” (ex: a floor dinner, play tickets, etc), participants will usually be expected to pay a small amount of their own money. As such, residents requesting funds for events that have a “per-head cost” should include the “per-head cost” on their Project Proposal forms. Funding will then be approved on a per-person basis (for example, a play that costs $10 a ticket could be approved at $7 per-person up to ten people for a total of $70).
Residents with questions/issues concerning student government may also email the student President.
