Resolutions

Introduction

A resolution is a written motion adopted by the Assembly. Resolutions are a powerful tool to adopt and convey the official position of the GSA on important campus and UC-wide matters. The resolution may also be used to direct the GSA and its officers to adopt specific actions.

Any issue or action may be made into a resolution, ranging from more general statements of support, thanks, or protest, to more specific policy positions or recommendations for outside bodies to take action.

Recommended Format

The resolution follows a format of headings, preambular clauses (WHEREAS), and operative clauses (LET IT BE RESOLVED).

WHEREAS clauses: facts, issues, and/or actions that caused this resolution to come forth.

LET IT BE RESOLVED clause: the action you wish the GSA to take on.
