Harper College’s Student Government Association (SGA) meets each week to discuss important issues relevant to student life. Below is a summary of their meeting minutes from September 9th, 2019, originally recorded by Dylan Hildebrand, SGA Chief of Staff.


  • Aleska Schwartz, Maria Kuzniar, and Ulises Wilkinson were sworn in as senators.


  • Beck Masi ran unopposed for Secretary of Leadership & Service and won with 7 votes in favor. All other SGA position elections will be postponed until next week.


  • Three new clubs—Photography Club, Ultimate Frisbee, and FAUNDS (Foundation for Allies of Undocumented, Non-Citizen, and DACA Students)—were approved by the committee.


  • PRIDE Club’s Juliana Vercillo expressed concerns about recent reports of anti-LGBTQ+ harassment on and off Harper’s campus.
    • Students experiencing or witnessing harassment should reach out Mike Vanlangingham in Student Involvement, the Dean of Students, Title IX Coordinator, or HEAT.


  • Juliana also discussed policies on campus that make it difficult for clubs to raise funds and request donations on campus.
