Internal Affairs

The Internal Affairs Committee exists for the purposes of considering all proposed constitutional amendments and bylaws, evaluating the actions of all CSUN officials, officers, employees, and entities, along with exploring the qualifications and standards for nominees to CSUN Student Government positions.

The committee members work to enhance the student experience by ensuring all elected and appointed officials of CSUN are held accountable for their actions. They investigate complaints and/or concerns brought forth by members of CSUN and/or the UNLV undergraduate student body against appointed and elected officials within CSUN. This committee works to provide mediation towards resolution while respecting individuality and diversity.

The Internal Affairs Form will be used for non-disciplinary action or requests. For example, if an individual has a question regarding a specific department or assistant's duties or workload, a request for a referral to the Internal Affairs Committee may be submitted. This will not result in disciplinary action-- this is simply a referral for an individual to present evidence of the items in question to the Internal Affairs Committee.

The CSUN Complaint Form will be used for disciplinary action or requests. This is used when an entity is suspected of breaking a policy or rule outlined by CSUN governing documents. All complaints will be referred to the CSUN Advisor prior to being brought to the Internal Affairs Committee.

Scholarships and Grants Committee

Each academic year CSUN allocates nearly $300,000 in funds to support various scholarships and grants that support undergraduate students. The Scholarships and Grants Committee develops these scholarships and grants in partnership with many UNLV entities and there is a very wide variety in order to reach as many UNLV undergraduates as possible. These CSUN funds can only be awarded to eligible undergraduates currently attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Ways and Means Committee

The Ways and Means Committee of UNLV CSUN Student Government strives to increase student activities and enhance campus life at UNLV. One of the ways in which Ways and Means accomplishes this goal is through the fiscally responsible allocation of CSUN undergraduate student fee money to supplement the cost of operating a Registered Student Organization (RSO).
