UPUA Governing Documents
The Governing Documents of the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) define how the UPUA functions as an organization. The primary way to approve or amend The Constitution, The Bylaws and Operational Code, and the Elections Code, a policy must be passed by a two-thirds (2/3rds) majority of those present and voting in the General Assembly. Amendments to the Constitution may also come from a Referendum by the Undergraduate Student Body. Referenda are proposed by petitions signed by three percent (3%) of the full-time undergraduate population and approved by a simple majority of those voting when at least fifteen percent (15%) of all eligible undergraduate students vote.
