Executive Budgetary Committee

Executive Budgetary Committee (EBC) is the first step in processing funding requests from student organizations, representative boards, community associations, and divisions of UMSG, Inc. EBC meets at 4pm on Mondays in the UMSG Conference Room (156 Memorial Union) and voting members include four elected student Senators (elected each semester), the Vice President of Student Organizations, and the Vice President and President of UMSG, Inc. The committee is chaired by Paige Allen, Vice President of Financial Affairs. Non-voting members may sit in on the committee if given approval from the VPFA. If your club is finally recognized with UMSG, you are eligible to submit a funding request. The deadline is 12pm on Fridays to be considered for Monday’s EBC. For more information on how to request money, please visit the Financial Affairs section of the website.

Student Organizations Committee

The Student Organizations Committee meets weekly to review applications for preliminary and final recognition, organization name changes, and constitution adjustments.  After discussing the applications and presentations the SOC makes a recommendation to the General Student Senate. The committee is comprised of the VPSO (Vice President of Student Organizations), and four senators. Applications should be submitted by 8:00pm on Tuesdays to be considered by SOC at 2:00pm on Wednesdays and by Senate the following Tuesday.

Student Leadership Committee

The Student Leadership Committee (SLC) is open to any students who want to get involved and have responsibilities including planning leadership development opportunities for students, UMSG recruitment + onboarding, student engagement for UMSG (tabling, merch, weekly newsletter), and “passion projects”. Passion projects are those that students want to take on that do not fit neatly into any other committees or divisions within UMSG – such as last year working with a student to get student opinion on inclusivity statements for syllabi or this year working on creating a syllabus bank for the UMaine campus. Another project we are working on is planning a TEDx event for students to participate in next semester. Reach out to jacob.chaplin@maine.edu to learn more or join!

Student Entertainment Committee

Great music. Great minds. Great price.

Sounds great?

The Student Entertainment Committee (SEC), a division of UMaine Student Government, strives to bring high-quality events to campus – from major concerts (eg. Jack Harlow, J Cole, Dierks Bentley, Ludacris, Panic at the Disco, Maroon 5) to major comedians (examples include Bob Saget, Demetri Martin, Daniel Tosh) to popular guest lecturers. SEC consists of Senators and is open to ANY STUDENT WHO WANTS TO HELP PLAN EVENTS ON CAMPUS.

Fair Elections Practices Committee 

Fair Elections Practices Commission (FEPC) is an election commission that is committed to providing a fair election for all Student Government, General Student Senate (GSS), and any other Student Government recognized club elections. FEPC is responsible for conducting and tallying ballots for elections as well as providing election-based events, such as debates and inaugurations, to executive Student Government elections. FEPC is the final arbiter for all Student Government elections and conducts annual reviews of the commission as well as Representative Boards and Community Associations.

FEPC is composed of an elected, non-senator Chair, an elected Senator, and, at a minimum, two elected non-senator students. The FEPC provides students of the University of Maine fair elections for all Student Government and General Student Senate (GSS) elections, as well as any requesting Student Government sponsored club’s election. The majority of FEPC members are non-senator students who help regulate and act as final judges to the elections of the Student Government. In essence, regular, non-Student Government, students can voice their opinion on the fairness of elections through the use of FEPC.
