Committees are the bodies through which most action is done in ESG. Committee members choose their own initiatives that enhance some aspect of the College of Engineering, and are given every tool at the government's disposal to help them. This is the best way for new members to become involved in Engineering Student Government.
The following are the eight committees of ESG:
Academic Affairs Committee
The Academic Affairs Committee is responsible for addressing program needs of the Student Body to the College of Engineering Administration. These issues may include:
Financial Aid, Fellowships, Grants and Awards
The Academic Affairs Committee shall be led by an elected chair and meet at least every two weeks. Students-at-large are welcome to join the Academic Affairs Committee.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is responsible for drafting resolutions, planning events, and other actions that encourage diversity and inclusion with the College of Engineering. They work closely to fulfil the vision prescribed by the College through its DEI Plan, working to create a more diverse and open atmosphere.
The Funding Committee is responsible for reviewing funding requests and approving allocations for student initiatives.
The Funding Committee is chaired by the ESG Treasurer, and must contain 5 to 12 students at any one time. Up to 5 students-at-large can be appointed to the committee following nomination by the Treasurer and approval by the Senate.
