Governing Documents

What are the RUSA Governing Documents?

The RUSA Governing documents are the foundational documents we use as a baseline and rulebook to run the student government. These documents include the RUSA Constitution and Standing Rules. Those documents can be found in the links below.


The RUSA Constitution lays out the legitimacy of the student government and, like the U.S. constitution, lays out the general structure of how the student government functions. This means detailing positions, committees, meeting structure, etc.

Standing Rules:

The Standing Rules outline the specific roles and duties of certain members of the assembly, such as committee chairs. It also conveys the details of meeting rules, attendance, E-Board, allocations, and other such assembly information.
