A proclamation, resolution, or petition is a formal stance, change of policy, or recommendation, adopted by the ASLC Senate. They can be proposed by any Linfield College student and, depending on the type of resolution, may require a simple majority, a 2/3 super-majority, or an all-campus vote. Students may propose resolutions to alter ASLC bylaws, take an ideological stance (against coal plants, for instance), or make student opinion on a particular matter (such as the Residence Life overnight-guest policy) clear to the college administration or faculty. Resolutions brought before ASLC Senate in the last three academic years can be found below. To learn more or to present a resolution to the Senate, contact the ASLC Vice President Kenna Whatley.
