Every spring semester, the Constitutional Review Committee convenes to discuss potential changes to the WSA Constitution and its by-laws. The committee is compromised of the members of the Organization and External Affairs Committee and any other interested Assembly members. It is chaired by the WSA Coordinator.
All revisions to the Constitution must be approved first by the Assembly and then the student body. By-laws changes are subject to the approval of the Assembly.
During the 2013 Constitutional review, the assembly voted unanimously to submit the following proposed changes:
- The Vice President was removed as the Chair of OEAC, the Coordinator shall now be the Chair of OEAC.
- The Vice President shall be an assistant to the President of the WSA and assume that office should the President be unable to fulfill hir duties. The Vice President shall be Vice Chair of the Executive Committee and chair the Student Representatives to the Board Committee.
- The Coordinator shall be the Chief Communications Officer and Chair of the General Assembly. When chairing meetings of the General Assembly, ze shall not be permitted to vote on any matter before the Assembly except in the event of a tie, in which case ze shall cast the deciding vote.
- The Finance & Facilities Committee (FiFaC) was renamed the Sustainability, Finance & Facilities Committee (SuFFaC) to demonstrate the WSA’s commitment to sustainability at Wesleyan.
