The purpose of the SAB is to promote student leadership and community service through various student-led clubs and organizations. The SAB has the ability to influence academic and administration policies through the expression of student voice to relevant administrators who attend SAB meetings and/or sponsored events.
If you are an enrolled MTC student, you are automatically a member of the student government. However, to ensure that your voice counts, you must become an active and participatory member, as a “student at large.”
Every MTC club and organization should have a representative attend the monthly SAB meetings. Clubs and organizations share ideas for leadership and community development, as well as, provide information regarding upcoming events within the individual clubs, on the campus, and in the community.
All academic departments will also have a student representative attending SAB meetings. These students will express the views and concerns of students within each individual department, as it pertains to the department and college as a whole.
No, a fee is not required to attend and/or participate in SAB activities. However, individual clubs and organizations may assess membership dues as outlined in their club/organization constitution.
The SAB meets Wednesdays (September-April) at 4:00 p.m. Meetings alternate between the Airport and Beltline campuses. Meetings generally last between 45 minutes to 1 hour, dependent upon invited guests, presentations and general SAB business matters.
Following is a list of leadership development opportunities. For information on campus happenings, check out: 2006-2007 Student Planner/Handbook, or the Student Activities web site at www.midlandstech.edu/studentactivities. However, the SAB and the Office of Student Activities is always looking for new ideas and suggestions of places to go and/or things to do. The possibilities are unlimited. It’s up to YOU!
