Student Government Association (SGA) closed its November 15 meeting to the public despite a protest by The Leader.
Students with the Student Osteopathic Medical Student Association applied for student club recognition. After their presentation, SGA asked the group to step out so the board could discuss recognizing the club.
SGA president Madiha Ahmed also asked The Leader to step out “in privacy for the discussion.” In past proposal discussions, The Leader was allowed to remain. No explanation was given to why The Leader was asked to leave this meeting.
Editor-in-Chief Syeda Sameeha objected to the closing of the meeting before stepping out.
