About Our Current Records

During any given session of the Student Government Association, we strive to maintain active records that shows the public, specifically our student body, the work the Student Government is doing on their behalf. In compliance with the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA), Student Government policy requires the Records Administrator to maintain active records of attendance, minutes, legislation and voting decisions. For any questions or access to records, please contact the SGA Chief of Staff via email at sga.cos@wichita.edu
