Campaigning for student leadership is scheduled to begin Monday. As of now, the election commissioner has not granted the campaign nominees permission to run for their respected offices. “In a record to remain in compliance with family Education Rights and Privacy Act, there will be no disclosure of students records, without having consent from the student,” said Beverly Crawford, Judicial Affairs Director. According to Crawford, SGA sent a list of names with nominees but there was nothing signed by the nominees releasing their judicial records to SGA. Nominees then had to sign a waiver as of yesterday, agreeing to release their record. As of Thursday at 9:30 a.m., no record has been released to the election Commissioner, and SGA advisor Audrey Warren, meaning no one is yet on the ballet.
