Outline of reasons to remove President Nick Larkins, OSI Director Shane Juntunen, and Office Manager Sandra Briggs
I will speak out against harassment, against intimidation, against coercion, against the failure to perform basic duties, against neglect, and against actions taken by University professionals that fail to uphold the basic principles of the University of Central Florida.
I will speak out against fundamental institutional violations of the Constitution of the Student Government Association, which holds that "We, the students of the University of Central Florida, in order that we may maintain the benefits of constitutional liberty and may create a representative association through which the individual student can participate actively in this University and which promotes cooperation among the Student Body, Faculty, and Administration, do hereby ordain and establish this Constitution of the Student Body of the University of Central Florida."
An inclusive and effective future for the Student Government Association of the University of Central Florida.
This press release lists the rules that have been violated and the institutional reasons for my call for their resignations. I will substantiate these claims in the speech on public record.
At 7pm in the Student Union Key West Ballroom (room 218), I, Chandra Kethi-Reddy, will use my voice in the Student Open Forum to expose the following violations of the basic tenets of our University.
President Larkins has committed several impeachable offenses, as defined by the Constitution of SGA.
Shane Juntunen has routinely failed to take care of his basic duties as an advisor of SGA and the Director of OSI
Sandra Briggs has created a hostile work environment with a long history of intimidation
On the grounds of these violations of fundamental principles of the University and of the Constitution of the Student Government Association, I hereby request the resignation of these three individuals.
I believe that once these three individuals have been removed, systematic barriers between the students and the administration will begin to crumble, and that we can begin to build a more responsive institution for the needs of its members. This is fundamentally a call to defend the Constitution of the Student Government and the meaning of student activism in support of our peers to develop a better University anchoring the Central Florida city-state.
