Staff Reports

There will be a Student Government Association presidential debate at 6 p.m. today in the Lyceum, inside the University Union.

Five students have joined the race to become the next president of the undergraduate student body.

The debate, which will last about two hours, will be moderated by assistant political science professor Dr. Bethany Blackstone, according to a Facebook event posted by SGA.

Two sitting SGA executives are running to replace undergraduate student body president Adam Alattry. Grant Hall, the current chief of staff, and Mikayla Barnes, the director of campus outreach, are each running their own presidential campaigns.

Voting for this race and others begins Monday, April 4. Polls close later that week on Thursday. The results of the election will be certified that night, according to the SGA website.

SGA is not the only governing body on campus.

There is also the Graduate Student Council, which used to be a part of SGA until it split last year. GSC is the official legislative organization for the graduate student body.

For the faculty and administration, there are the staff and faculty senates, where professors, assistants and UNT leaders go to voice concerns about their departments or lectures. And there’s also the Board of Regents, which is the chief legislative body for the entire UNT System.
