The Process Packet
The 2020-2021 Process Packet is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive guide to the inner workings of the Wake Forest University Student Government. It provides an overview of the processes followed by senators, cabinet members, and executive officers and gives step by step guidance for undertaking a variety of initiatives, projects, or programs. For SG members, it is a useful, easy to access reference guide. For members of the larger Wake Forest community, it provides insight into “who” is responsible for “what” and how SG serves the campus and Winston Salem community.
